Characteristics and Elements of Non-Punitive Employee Safety Reporting Systems for Public Transportation

The objective of this research is to present the characteristics and elements of a non-punitive, employee safety reporting system to facilitate improved safety performance for rail and bus transit agencies. This research draws from lessons learned by other transportation modes, in particular the airline and railroad industries. Additionally, it builds on related research that has been conducted for the transit industry by organizations including, but not limited to FTA, National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP), Transportation Research Board (TRB), and the USDOT Volpe Center.
