SAFETY FOR RAILROAD EMPLOYEES--CAN WE ACHIEVE SUCCESS. REPORT OF COMMITTEE NO. 1

Assuring the safety of employees, operating or non-operating, contributes greatly to the success and production on railroads. The subject of safety is analyzed and it is concluded that railroad supervisors are the key people in influencing the safety of the people they supervise. It is essential that they show a genuine interest in the employees and their welfare; that they be firm and fair; that they ensure that challenging work is offered; and, above all, that they respect the people and their professionalism in how to do the job in a safe manner.
