Unlike traditional testing programs that can be very expensive and require the driver to check in to an overnight lab for a full Polysomnographic Study (PSG), HireRight provides the driver with a portable FDA and AASM approved testing device that can be used in any natural sleeping environment. HireRight helps you save time and money, by getting the driver tested, assessed and back on the road with minimal downtime.
Once a Medical Examiner has determined that a sleep study is required, simply place your order through HireRight. When combining the sleep study with our DOT physical exam services, you have the added value of having our medical professional team help validate the completeness of the physical exam before submitting the sleep study order. All of your drug and health screening images and reports can be managed through one single platform.
Driver fatigue is responsible for an estimated 100,000 motor vehicle accidents and 1,500 deaths each year with associated costs of $12.4 billion per year.
The problem is even worse in the trucking industry, where it is estimated that close to 1 out of every 3 OTR drivers have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The situational performance of the untreated driver is similar to that of a person with a .06-.08 Blood Alcohol Content level.
Taking an active role in the well-being of your drivers by implementing a sleep study program can help prevent accidents, reduce medical costs, increase driver retention and improve overall quality of life.
