NJ TRANSIT employees criticize safety team staffing

Posted on June 9, 2015


NEWARK, N.J. — A newly released study found that NJ TRANSIT employees say the agency’s top leaders value on-time performance over safety and that, overall, more can be done to keep workers out of harm’s way while on the job, The Record reported.

The findings of the $467,000 report commissioned by NJ TRANSIT and conducted by Rail Safety Consultants of Pittsfield, N.Y. Rather than an analysis of statistics on quantifiable mishaps, such as accidents, fires or switch failures, the report attempts to gauge NJ TRANSIT’s attitudes, policies and procedures through a combination of employee surveys and inspector observations in the field. The Record obtained the report through an Open Public Records Act request. For the full story, click here.
