A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO RAILROAD SAFETY

The American railroad industry, with the cooperation of its suppliers and the Federal Railroad Administration, is currently pursuing an accelerating research program. Those parts of the program which are directed toward hazard abatement and control represents a major fraction of the overall program. These are complementary to programs directed toward improving railroad efficiency and effectiveness and reducing the environmental impact of the industry. This paper describes a systematic approach to railroad hazard abatement and control research. Several current and planned research programs are cited as examples of the methodology.
