Learn OSHA Whistle-Blower Protection Regulations for Railroad Workers

Railroad worker safety is unique in that two regulatory agencies have jurisdictional oversight given whether the worker is performing duties in a fixed railroad repair shop or on-the-track, in the locomotive or bridge work setting. While the preponderance of railroad worker safety requirements is governed by Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) regulations, certain other worker rights and work safety rules are governed by OSHA. The challenge is an understanding the divide for these jurisdictional boundaries and the type of work being performed.

The lack of understanding on which worker safety or protection rules apply, could result in citations, fines or lawsuits brought by injured employees for failure to follow safety regulations, or employees discharged for expressing safety concerns governed by OSHA whistle-blower protection regulations.

This presentation by Tom Barron will explain the following to provide working level knowledge of when OSHA regulations will apply for railroad worker safety instead of FRA worker safety rules:

  • An overview of current FRA railroad worker safety requirements as outlined in 49CFR213 and 214 and associated FRA safety manual regulation publications
  • OSHA regulations as applied to fixed-rail facility activities, i.e., repair shop, or worker safety regulations delegated to OSHA by the FRA
  • OSHA whistle blower protection rules for railroad workers

Who should attend:

  • Management and supervisors of rail shop facilities, on-track workers, and bridge workers
  • Personnel responsible for the rail company's railroad worker safety program
  • Training personnel
  • Human resource or labor relations personnel who must be aware of worker whistleblower protection rights which FRA has ceded to OSHA for authority and enforcement against offending companies
