SMART Transportation Division National Safety Team

The SMART Transportation Division National Safety Team is comprised of members of the SMART Transportation Division, each of whom is on call 24 hours a day to assist in determining the facts in rail-related accidents.

The team members are selected by the SMART Transportation Division president based upon their knowledge of operating rules and understanding of general railroad operations, train movements and dispatching.

When a major rail accident occurs, the NST coordinator immediately assigns one or more NST members, who immediately depart for the scene. The coordinator also notifies the SMART Transportation Division general chairpersons in the region and the respective state legislative director, as well as the National Transportation Safety Board.

NST members assist the NTSB in ascertaining factual data relating to the accident. For more information about the work of the NST, read this article, “SMART TD safety experts on call to NTSB 24/7.”
