Transload Safety: Jacking Railcars and Work Equipment Mobile App
The Transload Safety: Jacking Railcars and Work Equipment mobile app was developed to promote safe job practices for transload facilities that load and unload both dry bulk cargo and hazardous materials.
How does it work?
This app specifically covers jacking railcars and work equipment rules to minimize transloading railcar and tank truck job hazards and equipment related accidents.
Always use good judgment when you 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 jacking railcars and work equipment information related to rail work activities and also provides recommended loading guidelines that have been found to promote transloading safety.
Jacking railcars and work equipment rules must be complied with at all times. Jacking railcars and work 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 document 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.
