This Week’s Webinars on FTA’s New Safety Rules

Following publication of two important new safety rules, FTA is hosting a webinar series to explain the rules and their applicability to transit agencies. The next two sessions focusing on the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) rule have been scheduled for this week: Wednesday, September 5 and Thursday, September 6.

More webinars have been scheduled through September 18.

In July 2018, FTA issued two final regulations to strengthen the safety of public transportation systems. PTASP requires certain rail and bus operators to develop safety plans to better manage their safety risk using Safety Management Systems. The Transportation Safety Certification Training Program (PTSCTP) final rule establishes a basic curriculum for rail transit safety personnel responsible for the safety oversight of rail transit systems.

FTA's webinar series runs from July through September. Webinars are organized by mode, although participants are free to choose dates that best fit their schedules. Registration is required for all sessions.
