Occupational Health and Safety

At ResMed, we’re concerned with everything related to sleep and respiratory disorders. That’s why we support and actively engage in research initiatives related to occupational health and safety.

ResMed works alongside organisations in high-risk industries, such as trucking and mining, to increase awareness of sleep-disordered breathing, reduce accidents, improve productivity and contribute to the general health of personnel.

An example of such an initiative is ResMed’s education programme conducted with members enrolled in the not-for-profit, US-based Union Pacific Railroad Employees Health Systems (UPREHS) health plan. The low-cost, patient-centred programme significantly improved healthcare outcomes of sleep apnoea patients, and significantly reduced medical expenses for the UPREHS health plan.1
