An institute of higher learning

A conformance-driven approach to safety, as opposed to a compliance-driven one, can improve safety on regional and short line railroads due to its flexibility. The American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) has developed the Short Line Safety Institute with the goal of improving processes based on assessments of each railroad’s culture. The institute plans to assess railroads based on conformance to safety standards, looking for opportunities to work with railroads to strengthen weak points.
