KEYWORDS: Recordkeeping, OSHA, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
ABSTRACT: FRA proposes to conform, to the extent practicable, its regulations on accident/incident reporting to the revised reporting regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), U.S. Department of Labor. This action will permit the comparability of data on occupational fatalities, injuries, and illnesses in the railroad industry with such data for other industries, will allow the integration of these railroad industry data into national statistical databases, and will enhance the quality of information available for railroad casualty analysis. In addition, FRA proposes to make certain other amendments to its accident reporting regulations unrelated to conforming to OSHA�s revised reporting regulations. Finally, FRA proposes minor changes to its alcohol and drug regulations and locomotive engineer qualifications regulations in those areas that incorporate concepts from its accident reporting regulations.
