The report contains a recommended System Safety Program Plan for the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) rail system. It contains a recommended policy statement, recommendations for specific actions to improve CTA system safety management practices and processes, and finally, recommendations for a process for up-dating and re-evaluating the Program Plan. The suggestions presented build upon substantial foundation established previously by the CTA in its current system safety efforts. The Plan is divided into four sections: (1) Safety Policy Statement; (2) Current CTA Safety Activities; (3) Recommendations to Strengthen Current CTA Safety Management Practices and Processes; and (4) Recommendations for Re-Evaluation and Modification of the System Safety Program. These recommendations are to a great extent tailored to the specific facilities, personnel, and philosophy of the organization of the CTA, and are not intended as a set of general guidelines for the rail transit industry.
