Lack of a Thorough Job Briefing?
Permalink  
 


BLUEFIELD, W.Va. Norfolk Southern officials are investigating an incident in southern West Virginia that sent five track workers to a local hospital after two maintenance-of-way machines collided on Monday.

Railroad spokesman Jonathan Glass tells TrainsNews Wire that five maintenance-of-way workers were taken to the Bluefield Regional Medical Center on Monday, including two NS employees and two contractors. The four individuals were treated and released on the same day, but a fifth worker remained in the hospital Monday night.

A fifth worker, an NS employee, was held overnight for observation, says Glass.

That worker was supposed to be released on Tuesday, but the railroad was unable to confirm that as of Tuesday afternoon.

Glass says the incident involved a collision of two on-track maintenance-of-way machines. 

The accident occurred on track east of Bluefield on Monday at about noon, says Glass.

The area in question is located on NS Christiansburg District mainline, a former Norfolk & Western territory connecting Bluefield, W.Va., with Roanoke, Va.

Job briefings are just an another excuse for working slowly, or taking more time from actual productive work. Plus there is NO anecdotal proof that workers who participate in so called 'job briefings' prior to actually doing the prescribed job, work more safely than workers who just go to work!

At LAMCO, job briefings were paramount.

we usually held our job briefing while waiting for the officials to come out and inspect the carnage...

First thing we do after getting all our paperwork is to get SHEPUF'd.

 At least be smart enough to have the entire crew to know what you discussed in your job briefing even though you didn't. A hundred railroad guys in100 rooms should be able to have participated in the same job briefing that they didn't.

Amazing how many morans couldn't even make the shit up according to what the rule said that they didn't do.
