Join FTA’s Office of Safety and Oversight staff at the annual Joint SSO and RTA Workshop, Monday, September 23 through Thursday, September 26, 2019 in Washington, D.C. The workshop will focus on rail transit system safety, current oversight responsibilities, and the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (49 C.F.R. Part 673).
The workshop is open to States with rail fixed guideway public transportation systems. The FTA expects to see each SSO Agency represented at the workshop. RTA Chief Safety Officers, Safety Directors, and other program offices that collaborate with the safety office are also encouraged to attend. NOTE: Only contractors with an active contract with an RTA and/or an SSO Agency may attend.
There will be a Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) training session on Monday, September 23, beginning at 8:00 a.m. to discuss the minimum requirements needed for rail transit agencies to comply with the PTASP regulation and provide Safety Management Systems (SMS) implementation strategies. This session is limited to two representatives from each RTA and SSOA, including contractors.
