Accident fact gathering and investigation are essential elements of a safety management system in transit. Accident fact gathering and investigation seek to determine not only whether an accident was preventable or non-preventable, but also the cause and any contributing factors to the accident. It is the cause and contributing factors that help us learn to better manage our risks.
The SWTA course will provide a better understanding of the required tools and techniques of bus collision and incident fact gathering and initial investigation. The overall aim of any response to a bus collision or incident is to acquire sufficient information in the event that reconstruction of the event is required.
This course will cover the basic physics of collisions, data collection, on-scene evidence documentation, investigator tools, damage and debris evidence analysis, witness interview techniques, illustrations of simple speed estimates, field sketching and photography, and report writing. Implementation of the various investigative techniques can help minimize transit agency liability and reduce the frequency and severity of collisions.
Location: Bicentennial Council Transit Operations Center (TOC), 10151 Montana Ave., El Paso Texas, 79915
Limited Space. Sign up today. Certificate will be given upon completion of the course.
