Worker Safety
Innovative
Thinking
For over 135 years,
we've been thinking

" We wanted to make sure we are examining [RWP], as
well as examining transit worker assaults, which are on the
rise, " said Lyssy.
Lyssy notes the rate of security events reported to the
National Transit Database (NTD) increased 17 percent on
average annually between 2010 and 2020. That number
includes an uptick in transit worker assaults, which have
increased approximately fourfold since 2009.
" FTA has observed that transit agencies have worked to
improve transit worker safety in both the safety concern
areas with the implementation of new technologies and increased
training, as well as the establishment of new rules and
procedures within transit agencies. Through this RFI, we're
looking forward to gathering that information to evaluate
potential actions that FTA can take to further reduce the
safety risk to transit workers, " said Lyssy.

A Collaborative Effort
Data from NTD and recommendations from NTSB and
TRACS provide valuable input within the two safety areas
covered by the RFI, but feedback provided by the industry
will add another key avenue of input as FTA evaluates what
future mitigation actions may be needed.
FTA realizes safety impacts affect transit workers in their
daily lives. Lyssy explains that hearing how the transit industry
is currently addressing RWP and transit worker assault
prevention, as well as experiences, recommendations and
guidance provided as feedback through the RFI, is viewed
by FTA as a chance to improve transit safety.
" FTA also really appreciates the importance of the transit

agency perspective on what may or may not work as part of
their operations and maintenance, as well as the development
of their infrastructure and purchase of vehicles, " said Lyssy.
" We hope that the scope of this request for information shows
our commitment to improving worker safety by listening to
workers, as well as the industry and others who may have
information to share on these topics. "
The collaborative effort on these two topics will turn inward
at USDOT, as well.
