Sleep disorders account for 9.1% of work-related injuries and 7.6% of non work-related motor vehicle accidents. (Access Economics, 'The Value of Healthy Sleep', 2004). Sleep apnoea is the most common of these sleep disorders. The cost of work-related injuries attributable to sleep disorders was estimated to be approximately $3billion in 2004, with production disturbance costs of an additional $126million.
