The Institute of Safety and System Management of the University of Southern California under a grant from UMTA undertook a four month development of information to be used in the development of a Safety Program Plan for the Office of Safety and Product Qualification (OSPQ). This report contains the results of the research project. The purpose of this project was to identify and describe the critical safety issues which should be included in the Safety Plan for OSPQ. Six Key Objectives were developed from a review of legislative acts, administrative directives, past and present programs, goals of UMTA, and recommendations of associated agencies. The Six interrelated Key Objectives are the following: Decrease Accident Rates; Eliminate Catastropic Accident Conditions; Prevent "Unsafe" Conditions; Assure Use of "Best" Technology; Accomplish Objectives in a Cost-Effective Manner; and Determine and Correct "Unsafe" Conditions. In addition twenty-nine Critical Objectives and over ninety Specific Objectives were developed. This report recommends 16 specific programs for top priority consideration. The Appendixes herein are: Accident Data Base Forms (from Federal Railroad Administration, Bureau of Motor Carrier Safety, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, American Public Transit Association, and UMTA); Data and Statistics; References; and On-Going Research by Mitigation Type (Appnedix D--Volume II).
