Defensive Rail Operations
This recommended practice provides guidance to rail transit agencies (RTAs) for the creation of programs that encourage and promote the defensive operation of trains and other rail transit vehicles. Defensive operation encompasses situational and operational awareness of the operating environment. This document identifies considerations for how an RTA may establish a policy and provide guidance to employees on situational and operational awareness and how to operate trains in a defensive manner so as to minimize the potential for being involved in different types of incidents, while simultaneously improving operational safety and efficiency.
