Short Line Group Releases Best Practices Guide

The Short Line Safety Institute has released a new best practices guide that is based on five years of data it has collected through its Safety Culture Assessment program.

The assessment model uses 10 core elements of a strong safety culture as defined by the U.S. Department of Transportation Safety Council.

The SLSI guide provides best practices in each of the 10 elements, along with examples of the practice in action and an explanation of the rationale behind it.

Downloadable tools and additional resources are provided in many instances.

“The data analyzed across completed Safety Culture Assessments, coupled with the 500-plus years of railroad safety experience on our team, has identified some clear actions in each of 10 core elements to enhance a railroad’s safety culture,” said SLSI Executive Director Tom Murta in a statement.

He said the best practices guide will enable short lines to continuously evaluate safety culture across all metrics.
