UTU Transportation Safety Team

Posted By rob On December 9, 2010 @ 12:39 pm In | No Comments

The UTU Transportation Safety Team (TST) is comprised of 17 members of the UTU, each of whom is on call 24 hours a day to assist in determining the facts in rail-related accidents.

The team members are selected by the UTU International president based upon their knowledge of operating rules and understanding of general railroad operations, train movements and dispatching.

When a major rail accident occurs, the TST coordinator immediately assigns one or more TST members, who immediately depart for the scene. The coordinator also notifies the UTU general chairpersons in the region and the respective state legislative director, as well the National Transportation Safety Board.

TST members assist the NTSB in ascertaining factual data relating to the accident. For more information about the work of the TST, read this article, “SMART TD safety experts on call to NTSB 24/7.”

To contact members of the TST, see the listing below.
