Safety or Fleet Manager:
Having a “preferred vendor” when your drivers get a DOT medical certification pending a sleep study can avoid a host of operational problems caused by out of service drivers waiting for appointments for in-lab sleep studies..
Working with your recruiting and Human Resources department Safety First will develop a screening process to be used for all employees to decide which employees warrant sleep apnea testing. Screening programs can range from minimal screening using FMCSA-MRB guidelines to more accurate and specific screening questionnaires.
Using home sleep testing equipment provides a more cost effective testing option than in-lab polysomnography used by most sleep apnea testing and treatment firms.
Safety First can arrange on-site in-truck testing options conducted at your facility or other locations with our MeRV (Medical Resource Vehicle). We can make it convenient for employee home testing that is quick and efficient.
Home sleep studies can be shipped to your employees and taken on their time (at home or sleep environment of choice) depending on your requirements.
Safety First Sleep Solutions has cost effective treatment options that withstand the abuse of an over the road trucking environment or those requireing travel. Needing a 12V- 110 V AC inverter for operation, Safety First can create a working combination for CPAP use in sleeper berth operations. Slip seat operations may require a CPAP able to run directly on 12-V power such as the ResMed S-9 or Phillips – Respironics Prosystem. Team Operations will want the Fisher-Paykel. Proven to best withstand the water damage typical of sloshing humidification chambers in team operations the Fisher Paykel is best suited to team operations. Safety First will use any of the major brands of CPAP on the market to create a treatment program tailored to your operational needs. Providing 24/7 driver-patient phone support, Safety First knows the operations nightmares a medically out of service driver can cause for a trucking operation.
Part of the FMCSA – MRB guidelines for sleep apnea includes shortened medical certification periods pending follow up on CPAP compliance. Safety first can download compliance data from any major CPAP brand and keep your drivers ready for their next DOT physical by providing compliance data downloads and information to DOT medical examiners and other healthcare professionals.
