Transportation agencies put proposed sleep apnea testing to rest

Sources: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA); CP staff

FMCSA and the Federal Railroad Administration have withdrawn a March 2016 advance notice of proposed rulemaking concerning the prevalence of moderate-to-severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) among individuals occupying safety-sensitive highway or rail transportation positions. The agencies believe that current safety programs and FRA’s rulemaking addressing fatigue risk management are the appropriate avenues to address OSA.
