FRA Seeks Comments on Safety Rule

Public comments are being taken by the Federal Railroad Administration on a proposed rule pertaining to railroad risk management.

The rule, which was published Dec. 22 in the Federal Register, would require some railroads to develop and implement a fatigue-risk management program.

Railroads would determine their fatigue risk by identifying and analyzing applicable hazards and take action to mitigate or eliminate that risk.

The Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008 mandated the rule that the FRA has proposed.

Comments are due to the FRA by Feb. 22.
