Does your company ship and receive by rail? Do you know with certainty that every rail car within your organization is secured against unintended movement? Are you familiar with FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act) and its relevance to companies who have a side track as part of their facility? If you answer YES to any of these questions, then this workshop is for your organization.
Chuck Leonard, president of Rail Safe Training, and his team, all railroad veterans, will share their expert knowledge. Chuck has 38 years of experience as a locomotive engineer operating in nearly every type of service from industrial switching, flat yard classification switching, passenger service, snow plow service, work train service, mixed freight and heavy haul coal and grain. He & his team are familiar with CTC, ABS, TWC and rule 6.28 operating systems; plus, they have expert knowledge of air brake, car inspection and track inspection. And with a long tenure in the railroad industry, you can expect to hear some unbelievable stories as well!
In the presentation you will learn:
- The base-level dynamics of railroad/industry interaction and the effect it can have on service and profits
- Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) vs. workers compensation laws: have you reviewed your service contract?
- Common sense is nonsense: identifying the parameters of acceptable risk
- A little bit of dangerous is still dangerous: it’s not a John Deere
- How to improve service and reduce liability through proper rail operations training
Please Register by Monday, February 8th. We look forward to seeing you there!
