Rail Safety Education

Operation Lifesaver Inc. is a national, non-profit safety education group whose goal is to eliminate deaths and injuries at railroad crossings and along railroad rights-of-way. It has programs in all 50 states with trained and certified presenters who provide free safety talks to raise awareness around tracks and trains. 

Operation Lifesaver wanted to address the unique challenges in training drivers of all types of trucks in the procedures for safe rail crossings and to help them make sound decisions at railroad crossing. They wanted to maximize student access by building an appealing online learning experience because statistics show approximately one out of four railroad crossing crashes involves vehicles that require a Commercial Driver License (CDL) to operate; this includes all sizes of trucks from larger over-the-road vehicles, to your local delivery trucks. 

Results

Truck drivers, school bus drivers, first responders, and many other CDL vehicle drivers are able to make on-the-spot decisions regarding safety without any of the consequences. This e-learning training course has increased the performance of many drivers, increased safety levels, and saved many lives. 

We are honored that this course has been recognized by industry peers, earning both a Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning – Best Custom Content Gold Award as well as an International Gold Davey Award. While the ultimate success of this training may be measured by demonstrating a reduction in number of incidents and accidents at railroad crossings, we believe even a single life saved because of the training is a success.
