“Eureco Health Solutions is excited to join the SWANA Affinity Program and is enthusiastic about engaging with the SWANA community to share expertise in employee health and risk management. We are proud to be supporting SWANA's goal to promote health and safety best practices in the waste management industry.
Through our Total Sleep Solution we provide expert clinical oversight of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) testing, diagnosis, and treatment for commercial drivers at any location nationwide. Drivers at risk of OSA cost their employers on average $4,000 more per year compared to a driver that has been treated. With approximately 1/3 of drivers at risk, there are significant costs with not acting.
We look forward to meeting with health and safety leaders across the waste industry at the upcoming SWANAPalooza conference in Reno. Please come visit us at booth 625 in the safety pavilion.”

A recent study of commercial drivers in northern Italy revealed results with serious implications for sleep apnea monitoring in the transportation industry. In a study of 283 male commercial drivers reporting no signs of sleep apnea, 100 tested positive for the sleep disorder. Two years of treatment for drivers with severe OSA resulted in near-miss accident rates dropping to that of drivers without obstructive sleep apnea.
The results of this study show the medical necessity of proper screening and treatment for commercial drivers. To learn about how Eureco Health Solutions can implement our sleep apnea program and protect your company and its drivers from unnecessary medical risks and costs, contact us today.
