Don’t Go Through Life Asleep at the Wheel

Sleep impacts every aspect of your daily life. It’s easy to joke about how you “can’t function without coffee”, but the reality is that you’re doing more harm than you think. Your entire day could be impacted by poor sleep habits.

Sleep is good for your immune system.

  • Sleeping well helps your immune system function more efficiently
  • Antibodies and cells that fight infection are reduced when you don't get enough sleep

You put yourself and others at risk when you don’t get enough sleep.

  • By being alert, employees face fewer errors and faster response time
  • Accident risk decreases by 70%
  • Sleep deprivation has a side effect of feeling drunk

You are three times more likely to be in a car crash if you are fatigued. Respiratory dysfunction can be an indicator of whether or not a teamster is at risk of drowsy driving.

According to DOT regulations, every 2 years your Certified Medical Examiner determines whether or not you have a respiratory dysfunction, like sleep apnea, in order to renew your Medical Certificate.

Having sleep apnea DOES NOT disqualify your Medical Certificate. A CME’s confirmation that you are managing your condition (using your CPAP machine) is all you need to keep your Medical Certificate and CDL after being diagnosed with sleep apnea.

Stop hitting the snooze button on getting healthier.
This is your wake up call.
