GEAPS Exchange 2022 – Railroad Safety and Rail Car Mover Operations
Many rail customers have never been properly trained to work with rail equipment, merely expected to because of their product(s). With OSHA work related fatalities at around 13 people everyday in the US, this session will demonstrate how the railroad works around the equipment through examples of communication, procedures, and safe work practices all while building a Safety Culture. The training provided can prevent injury, accidents and possibly derailments from happening. The presenter is an everyday railroader with more than three decades’ experience in switching and locomotive operations.
