The Fatality Analysis of Maintenance-of-way Employees and Signalmen (FAMES) Committee was formed by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) in collaboration with railroad labor and management representatives, to form an ad-hoc committee to review roadway worker fatalities.
FAMES is a voluntary, consensus-based Committee focused on identifying risks, trends, and factors impacting roadway worker safety. FAMES will periodically issue findings and recommendations based upon its review of available safety data. The Committee’s activities are focused on education and prevention.
Accident prevention and elimination is the responsibility of all employees by creating and maintaining a safe work environment.
The Safety First Comments Form is provided to offer employees an opportunity to report issues concerning unsafe practices or conditions and to make recommendations for improvement.
All reports are anonymous. However, to ensure proper handling, please indicate the RGPC property to which the report pertains. All items reported will be addressed and the "RESPONSIVE ACTION" taken will be posted below for review by all concerned.
