NTSB is recommending a mandatory Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) screening and treatment for highway and rail workers in safety-sensitive positions. And, includes the recommendation that FMCSA implement a program identifying truckers with OSA as well as making the OSA screening recommendations by FMCSA Medical Review Board easily accessible to medical examiners and asking examiners to use these recommendations as a guide when assessing the OSA risk.
