ABSTRACT: The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) supports a program of research on human factors safety that focuses on three major programmatic areas of research -- train operations systems, railroad operating practices and grade crossing safety. This program of research supports the FRA's strategic goals of reducing the rate of rail-related deaths, injuries, and train accidents by understanding and eliminating the causes of human error, by fostering better practices through the development of model training curricula, and by anticipating the human factors safety consequences of new technology.
