The Short Line Safety Institute (SLSI) late last week unveiled its "Safety Tip Tuesday" program, which provides seasonal tips for employees at small railroads. Each Tuesday, a new tip will be posted on the institute's website and Facebook page for railroads to download and print. "The Safety Tip Tuesday program was created in response to an industry need uncovered during our many safety assessments,” said Michele Malski, safety program manager at SLSI. "We hope that our Safety Tip Tuesday program will engage and assist our industry in continuously improving their safety culture."One winter-related safety tip advises personnel to check walkways, side sills and steps for snow and ice before entraining and detraining. Another recommends that employees check batteries and functionality of lanterns to ensure proper visibility during decreased daylight hours.Created by the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association, SLSI is tasked with performing safety assessments at railroads across the country.
