Agency Safety Plan Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) and Proposed National Safety Plan Webinar Series

Tuesday, March 1, 2016
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Event Description:

Join us for a webinar series hosted by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA)’s Office of Transit Safety and Oversight to discuss the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), and the proposed National Public Transportation Safety Plan. During the webinar, FTA will discuss the provisions of both the proposed rule and plan, and how industry stakeholders can get involved in the regulatory process.

The proposed Agency Safety Plan rule would require any public transportation system that receives Federal financial assistance to certify and implement a safety plan based on the principles of Safety Management System (SMS). The National Safety Plan is not a regulation, but would be FTA’s primary tool to disseminate guidance, technical assistance, templates, and other resources related to safety rulemaking to help transit providers improve their safety performance. Comments are due by April 5, 2016.

This session is targeted at bus agencies. We also are offering webinar sessions for small urban, rural and tribal agencies and multimodal agencies. All webinars will offer the same content. FTA recommends registering for one session that fits your schedule.
