We will be reviewing the stories affecting trucking today and hoping some drivers will join us for a discussion regarding how enforcement of the sleep apnea rules are affecting them and what they are doing to comply with the physician's recommendation. Are there more 3 month med cards being issued? Are the physicians over stepping their authority? Did FMCSA not give enough guidance to physicians? Have you tried to be proactive and address any issues prior to going for your DOT physical? What's working, what's not? Have you searched the web for miracles? Why is it that many drivers have bad eating habits, lack of time to exercise or just plain can't pass physicals? Drivers? Companies? DOT? Physicians? Truck Stops? I believe all share the responsibility. Let's discuss it?
DISCLAIMER: We do not pretend to have all the answers nor know all the regulations, rules and rights. Remember states have the right to adopt all or some of the Federal Regulations so you must know your state laws as well as the Federal laws. We offer an arena to discuss both our and your experiences and best practices. Please keep in mind our goal is to improve the safety of our highways and byways across our great nation. We humbly defer to the regulatory agencies both state and federal to help all of us be the safest we can be.
We encourage everyone to contact the appropriate regulatory agency directly, however if you are not comfortable doing that please contact the Safety Mentor.
