The Short Line Safety Institute (SLSI) has unveiled its second in a series of safety tips for short lines and regionals. Launched in January, the Safety Tip Tuesday Program provides a railroad safety tip each week, with specific attention paid to unique seasonal challenges, SLSI officials said in a press release.The SLSI will post the springtime tips on its website and Facebook pages.Examples of spring safety topics include:• erosion, which can be a factor as snow melts and softens the ground. Muddy areas can appear and clog culverts. Soil erosion can alter track conditions.• snakes and insects, which can bite or sting. Workers should be aware of where they step and when they reach into dark spaces.• melting snow, which can lead to mudslides, washouts and other ground shifts that can cause serious track obstructions.• fog, which can challenge visibility.• yard drainage, which can be a concern when water collects in the low point of the yard.
