The Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration has awarded the Short Line Safety Institute a $500 000 grant to create a Hazardous Materials Training Academy in Washington DC.
‘Small railroads will greatly benefit from the expertise and resources the Hazardous Materials Training Academy will provide’, said SLSI Executive Director Tom Murta on August 28. ‘The academy will provide classroom training, hands-on instruction, response exercises, and support individual railroads in training their personnel. Our programme will enhance the training currently provided in the industry.’
SLSI was established by the American Short Line & Regional Railroad Association in 2014 with Federal Railroad Administration support, in order to provide safety training for smaller railway companies.
