How Sleep Apnea Affects Drivers, Operators, and Train Conductors

Dealing with Sleep Apnea Amongst Train Conductor and Operators

In order to deal with the problems regarding sleep apnea among train conductors and operators, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has proposed sleep apnea screening and treatment to all train engineers and conductors, as well as bus operators. The screenings will evaluate each employee’s Body Mass Index and ask them questions related to their sleeping patterns and medical history. Those who are at risk will have to undergo further examinations and a potential treatment session.
