Worker Safety
continue to improve safety, " said Lyssy. " The goal of FTA's Enhanced
Transit Safety and Crime Prevention initiative is to provide
information and resources to help transit agencies address
and prevent crime on their systems and protect workers and
riders. The results from this RFI, particularly the information
shared regarding the specific types of interactions that lead to
assaults and recommendations for actions that could limit or
prevent those assaults, will really help FTA inform this initiative. "
Submitting Input
FTA developed the RFI to focus on the procedures and training being
implemented by the transit industry to mitigate transit worker
safety and RWP risk, as well as identifying physical protections.
" Through this information collection process, we're really
hoping to receive new information about new technologies that
may protect workers through awareness, as well as warning and
even capabilities to slow and stop trains before those accidents
occur. The same holds true for the transit worker assaults, " said
Lyssy. " We have to remember a transit worker assault is not
just the driver. It's also the station manager and the folks who
are working within the transit industry. We need to make sure
we're considering all transit workers and not just the operators.
We're casting a broad net in terms of both data and potential
solutions on both fronts for transit worker assault, as well as
RWP to address these important challenges. "
TriMet
A TRIMET track inspector sets up a call board at one end
of a work zone. Call boards are one safety component
utilized when working on or near live track.
Feedback on the RFI can be submitted to the FTA by Nov.
23, 2021. FTA held a webinar on the RFI on Oct. 12 and the
presentation is available online at the FTA's website.
" FTA is going to use the information received through the
process to evaluate any potential actions to mitigate these safety
risks for transit workers and then help to identify potential steps
that can be taken to prevent transit worker assaults, " said Lyssy.
" We are looking forward to reviewing the responses to the questions
included in the RFI, to hear from others [on] what the steps
are they've taken to improve safety of their workers and help find
ways to continue to improve transit safety across the industry. "
