Short Line Safety Institute Pilot Safety Culture Assessment Project: Development of Assessment Tools

The American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA), with the support of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Office of Research, Development, and Technology (RD&T), are implementing a Short Line Safety Institute. The ASLRRA and FRA initiated the Institute with a Pilot Safety Culture Assessment Project (Pilot Project), which is focused on short line and regional railroads that transport crude oil. FRA RD&T worked with the University of Connecticut (UCONN) to develop a suite of safety culture assessment tools that included a web-based safety culture survey instrument, field conformance checklists, and interview protocols. This report describes UCONN's process for developing and pilot testing the web-based safety culture survey.
