An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan In Plant Rail Safety Program


  • Head-End Protection — Simply put, this refers to positioning a worker at the front end of the train in order to watch for pedestrians or other equipment that may be in the direction of travel. This can be the locomotive operator if he/she has a clear view of the rails ahead. It may also be a brakeman or switchman who is in radio contact with the locomotive operator. If the locomotive is operated by a radio-controlled remote, then the remote operator must be at the front of the train, watching in the direction of travel.
  • Work On or Near Tracks — Prior to performing work within six (6) feet of any railroad track, permission must be obtained from railroad Supervisor/Designated person to take the track out of service [8]When any type of maintenance or repair is being performed on or near railroad tracks, some form of positive track protection should be utilized. This could be in the form of a derailer placed in front of the work area or a switch that has been diverted and locked out.  In addition, a warning device such as a blue flag or light should be placed in front of the work area.  Never attempt to crawl under rail equipment or climb over moving rail equipment or attempt to cross in front of moving equipment.   [6]   The positive protection and warning devices may need to be placed on both sides of the work area if rail equipment can travel both ways. 
  • Work Between the Rails — Many of the injuries and fatalities that have occurred in plant railyards have occurred when employees positioned themselves between the rails. Never position any part of the body in a potential pinch point. Rail equipment can move in either direction at anytime [7]When coupling or uncoupling, it is safer to work with one foot outside the rails whenever possible. Also, workers should avoid kicking couplers when they stick, since this activity increases the likelihood of falling between the rails.. ....
