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 should draw from lessons learned by other transportation modes, in particular the airline and railroad industries. Additionally, it should build 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. The final deliverable should address the following on the development and implementation of a non-punitive employee safety reporting system: Experience of transit agencies, Safety culture, Organizational strategies for promoting procedural fairness, Roles of stakeholders, Types of data that should be collected, Strategies for collecting data, and Scalability of the reporting system for transit agencies of different sizes.
