NJ Transit engineers diagnosed with sleep apnea

Since the deadly NJ TRANSIT crash in Hoboken previous year, 44 of the transit agency's engineers have tested positive for sleep apnea.

NJ Transit screened 373 engineers for sleep disorders, said Nancy Snyder, an NJ Transit spokeswoman.

Sleep apnea can lead to risky drowsiness during waking hours. A woman was killed and more than 100 were injured when an engineer with an undiagnosed sleep apnea slammed into the station at more than double the speed limit. Out of those engineers, 57 were taken out of service until a full sleep study could be conducted, she said.

NJ TRANSIT spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said nearly all the engineers who tested positive got treatment - and are back on the job now. The National Transportation Safety Board found the engineer of that train suffered from sleep apnea.

Earlier this year, the federal government pulled back from mandating sleep apnea testing for railroad workers and truck drivers, but new legislation has been introduced to mandate that once again.
