Division Standings


Safety Hotline



From our Safety Cordinator Tom Fastenow


The Nebraska Division has had 7 more injuries to date this year opposed to last year!

What do you think the reason is for the increase?

Are crews observing ande talking about RISK in the workplace?

Is everyone really looking out for each other?

There have been 55 locomotive door injuries on the BNSF this year.

When you close a locomotive door do you think about the RISK?

Would a slogan such as “Hand on the Handle” help employees focus?

Human Factor Derailments and Speeding Violations are down!

Great Job!

Authority Violations are still trending upward in 2010!

Ottumwa Sub-7

Ravenna Sub-2

St. Joseph Sub-2

Creston Sub-2

Lincoln Terminal-2

Do you call signals and/or restrictions and JSB when you are in a critical are?

Do you JSB about known form B's and other restrictions ath the start of duty?

Do you think that it could happen to you?

AUTHORITY VIOLATIONS AND 8 DEADLY DECISION VIOLATIONS ARE HOW RAILROADERS GET SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED.

What do you do when you see someone violate an 8 deadly?

Why would anyone put themselves at RISK like that?

The BNSF is currntly in our 8th year of our Unions participation in the Safety Summit Agreement.

Is the physical plant in better condition than it was 8 years ago?

Are there as many injuries and fatalities as there used to be?

Do you have any suggestions to make our workplace even safer?
