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.

The Record obtained the report through an Open Public Records Act request. For the full story, click here.
