2018 Railroad Environmental Conference: Managing Health and Safety

  1. 1. Antea USA, Inc. Railroad Environmental Conference October 23 & 24, 2018 Managing Health and Safety: Are Your Programs Up to Date? Jared Martin, Modesto & Empire Traction Company Matt Carne, Modesto & Empire Traction Company Peter T. Masson, Consultant, Antea Group
  2. 2. Antea USA, Inc. FRA and OSHA Relationship FRA regulates matters that relate to operational safety (i.e. safe movement of equipment over rails). All other aspects will be enforced by the Department of Labor – OSHA, where the conditions are similar to those in any industry.
  3. 3. Antea USA, Inc. FRA and OSHA MOA – July 16, 2012 Due to the potential overlap of jurisdiction the two agencies entered into a Memorandum of Agreement to delineate the areas for which each agency would assume responsibility for the health and safety of railroad employees. Under this agreement, each agency will "carry out their respective statutory responsibilities independently . . . [but recognize], that administrative efficiency and sound enforcement policies will be maximized by cooperation and the timely exchange of information in areas of mutual interest.“ In general, this boundary has generally be accepted to be what occurs inside a facility, such as a maintenance garage, versus what occurs on the tracks.
  4. 4. Antea USA, Inc. So what got M&ET started? In 2016 at an ASLRRA conference in National Harbor, Maryland, we sat in on a presentation given by Annie Richardson from Antea Group. She discussed how OSHA plays a role in the rail industry. We met as a team after the conference to discuss Annie’s presentation and how we wanted to address our OSHA concerns. We scheduled an OSHA assessment with Antea Group a few months after the National Harbor Conference.
  5. 5. Antea USA, Inc. And what did we find? From the assessment that was conducted by Antea Group we found that we were deficient in many areas. We simply didn’t know what we didn’t know. Based on what we had been hearing and what we found through our assessment, we felt obligated to protect our employees and our assets. The state of California typically is the “tip of the spear” when it comes to regulations and we want to be prepared if/when OSHA shows up.
  6. 6. Antea USA, Inc. Plans and Programs for the M&ET • Injury and Illness Prevention Program • Emergency Action Plan • HazCom • Hearing Conservation • Respiratory Protection (Incl. Silica Sampling) • Various EHS (Incl. respirator fit testing)
  7. 7. Antea USA, Inc. Lesson Learned Through this process we have learned the following: •Fatality can cost up to $9.2 million •There is always room for improvement (Hazard Assessments) •Our employees are grateful for the steps we’ve taken to increase safety and awareness •Anything and everything must be documented (Training) •We’re not alone….. Antea Group has been by our side since 2014 offering 24/7 support We’ve been in business for over 100 years and I have never seen or heard of OSHA stepping foot on our property; however, one accident/injury could quickly open up the door.
  8. 8. Antea USA, Inc. Moving forward There are only a few programs left to wrap up: •Job safety analyses •Working at heights •Bloodborne pathogens •Hot work permitting Annual or biannual review, as needed, to ensure compliance (OSHA and CalOSHA)
