When operating your fleet business, safety is a top priority.
Taking an active role in the well being of your workforce initiates a reciprocal partnership and the result is increased productivity – healthy employee, healthy bottom line.
Implementing a sleep apnea program can prevent crashes, reduce medical costs and increase driver retention.

The Economics of the SleepSafe™ Drivers
Testing to Treatment Program for Sleep Apnea
Four to ten month payback period:
The medical and accident avoidance savings resulting from our Testing to Treatment program will cover the safety investment of the program within a four to ten month payback period. With the ongoing Sure-Compliance Program you will continue to reap greatly reduced costs year in and year out.
The relatively high proportion of fleet drivers with sleep apnea provides significant opportunity to return money to the bottom line.
Through a well-executed, proactive testing and treatment program fleets:
• can reduce risk
• improve the health of their drivers
• reap significant savings in reduced Worker’s Comp payments
• reduce sick-day expenses
• reduce liability and insurance costs over time
• improve driver retention
It has been proven that treated drivers have:
• significantly less accidents
• reduced medical costs
Studies have shown that:
• Every dollar invested in testing and treating drivers with sleep apnea,
a company would achieve three dollars of net savings.
Recent published findings displayed at SLEEP 2014
SleepSafe Drivers engaged in a formal clinical study in partnership with Fusion Sleep and a top ten fleet to help document additional areas of savings and provide statistical significance. This study received approval from a Certified Physician’s Independent Review Board to help ensure the outcomes are objective and statistically significant. Every fleet is different, of course, so SSD will work with you to document your own savings.
Our multi-year sleep study with J.B. Hunt, published at the 2014 SLEEP Conference, documented:
• 53% reduction in accidents
• 55% reduction in hard braking
• 56% reduction in medical costs
It is expected that these combined reductions will more than pay for the cost of the program, driving a positive ROI.
