Confidential Close Call Reporting System - C3RS
A Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) sponsored voluntary confidential program allowing railroad carriers and their employees to report close calls. The program provides a safe environment for employees to report unsafe events and conditions. Employees receive protection from discipline and FRA enforcement. Railroads also receive protection from FRA enforcement for events reported within C3RS.
- NASA acts as Independent Third Party
- NASA accepts close call reports online or by mail
- Currently there are 8 participating carriers and 17 active Peer Review Teams (PRTs)
- Over 21,000 front line railroad employees are eligible to report safety incidents to C3RS
- PRTs are cross functional teams that evaluate de-identified reports and make recommendations for corrective actions
