This app specifically covers coupling/uncoupling rail equipment rules to minimize transloading railcar and tank truck job hazards and equipment related accidents. Always use good judgment when your load and unload from a rail car, tank car or truck, following the safest course available. No action should ever be taken until you are fully aware of the hazards involved and have a plan to proceed safely. This app contains coupling/uncoupling rail equipment information related to rail work activities and also provides recommended loading guidelines that have been found to promote transloading safety. Coupling/uncoupling rail equipment rules must be complied with at all times. Coupling/uncoupling rail equipment guidelines are recommendations and must be followed unless another method is known to be as safe or safer after discussing and agreeing to the new procedure with a supervisor. This app allows you to documents that employees perform their rail car load and unload duties in a safe manner that is compliant with Federal, State, and local requirements as well as transloading facility policies and procedures. A PDF is generated for transloading facility safety records.
