13 The National Safety Program The National Safety Program includes four distinct components, three of which are: National Safety Plan 49 U.S.C. 5329(b) Establishes SMS as foundation for FTA s safety regulatory framework Includes the definition of State of Good Repair and safety performance criteria Transit Agency Safety Plan 49 U.S.C 5329(d) Introduces SMS into practice Provides agencies with authority to set performance targets for safety and SGR based on requirements set out in the National Safety Plan Safety Certification Training Program 49 U.S.C. 5329(c) Introduces SMS concepts Improves technical competencies of safety oversight professionals Slide 13

14 National Safety Plan At a minimum, the National Safety Plan will include: Safety performance criteria Definition of State of Good Repair A public transportation safety certification program Minimum vehicle standards Data analysis will be used to identify national trends that suggest: gaps in safety performance common hazards leading practices for risk control Slide 14

15 Safety Performance Criteria FTA will set safety performance criteria for all modes Criteria will support analysis and risk evaluation As a result, transit agencies will become more proactive in safety risk management Slide 15

16 Minimum Vehicle Safety Standards FTA s priority is to issue a proposed rule to establish a bus testing pass/fail standard Rule will determine usage of FTA funds for bus purchase Performance standards define an end result, but allow flexibility on how that result is achieved Congress did not intend FTA to replicate a regulatory model, with highly prescriptive regulations FTA will consider leading industry practices and National Transit Safety Board (NTSB) recommendations Slide 16

17 Transit Agency Safety Plan The Transit Agency Safety Plan will demonstrate: Compliance with the National Safety Plan Implementation of SMS; scalable and flexible Agencies must establish and certify this comprehensive plan within a year of the final rule States may draft and certify Agency Safety Plans for rural areas and for small public transportation providers in urban areas Slide 17

19 Safety Management Systems (SMS) Published policy to adopt SMS in May 2013 Essential building blocks of a successful SMS already exist Each transit agency to develop processes to implement SMS Safety Management System is: Scalable and flexible to support transit systems of all sizes Proactive method for managing system safety A way to ensure data-driven safety decision making Focused on the overall safety performance, not compliance with regulation and requirements Slide 19

20 SMS Framework 1. Safety Management Policy 2. Safety Risk Management 3. Safety Assurance 4. Safety Promotion Slide 20

21 Safety Management Policy Accountable Executive Roles and responsibilities Management commitment Integration with existing programs Documentation Slide 21

22 Safety Risk Management Hazard identification and analysis Risk assessment and mitigation Slide 22

23 Safety Assurance Safety performance monitoring Management of change Continuous SMS improvement Slide 23

24 Safety Promotion Competencies and training Safety communication Slide 24

25 SMS Summary SMS is scalable and flexible and recognizes that one size does not fit all All transit agencies, regardless of mode, size or operating characteristics will be required to develop Transit Agency Safety Plans States may help develop and certify Transit Agency Safety Plans for Small Providers FTA is developing bus testing pass/fail standards Slide 25

26 4 questions that SMS will facilitate answering What is most likely to be the cause of your next accident or serious incident? How do you know that? What are you doing about it? Is it working? Slide 26

27 The Bus Program and MAP-21 Bus Program enters into transition period Moving from totally voluntary guidance and technical assistance program to include safety oversight Provide information on and guide transit industry through SMS implementation process Continue orientation seminars / presentations Continue onsite safety reviews Redesigned website Slide 27
