Additional Items to keep in mind:
Always be on the alert for moving equipment while working near
any Railroad tracks or facilities.
Do not step or walk on the top of the rail, frog, switches,
guardrails, or other track components.
In passing around ends of standing cars, engines,
railroad machinery, and other on-track equipment, leave at least
one rail car length (50 feet) between yourself and the end of
or standing on track at any time.
When it is necessary to walk or work on track, always keep
a sharp lookout in both directions for approaching trains.
Before stepping or crossing tracks,
look in both directions first. The same is true when walking
around machinery and equipment on and about the tracks.
Do not sit on, lie under, or cross between
cars except as required in performance of your duty and only
when track and equipment are under proper protection.
In multiple track territory, do not stand
on one track while a train is passing on another.
Always expect movement at any time, on any
track, in either direction.
Always keep in mind that a split second of inattention can
result in a serious accident.
