Short Line Safety Institute: Testing the Fidelity of Its Robust Model
The Short Line Safety Institute practices continuous improvement, regularly measuring to ensure that the most robust model for assessing safety culture in the railroad industry is consistently applied. By assessing its fidelity and examining the practices of its Assessors, SLSI can gain further insight into its robust process. The results show that there is a high Assessor (a person who conducts the Safety Culture Assessment) conformance to SCA protocols and procedures, and there are areas for improvement. SLSI continues to update and manage its protocols to provide the most accurate information to the Assessors, maintain consistency in Assessor behaviors across SCAs, and provides annual Assessor training.
