The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has established an ultimate goal of "Zero Tolerance" for railroad-related accidents, injuries and fatalities. In pursuit of that goal, significant progress has been made, particularly over the past six years, in reducing the number of train collisions, derailments, highway-rail grade crossing incidents and injuries to railroad workers. These results have been achieved because of a collaborative effort involving the FRA, railroad management, rail labor, equipment suppliers and contractors, as well as other federal and state agencies whose mission involves ensuring railroad safety. Central to the success of this rail safety effort is the ability to understand the nature of rail-related accidents and to analyze trends in railroad safety.
The FRA's Railroad Safety Statistics - Annual Report is intended as a resource for the FRA's safety partners. It is also intended as a general reference source for individuals and organizations with an interest in rail safety issues. Statistical data, tables and charts are provided to depict the nature and cause of many rail-related accidents and incidents that occurred in 1998. Furthermore, selected historical data is included to provide a baseline for understanding the railroad industry's improving safety performance.
It is hoped that the information provided in this publication will provide insight into the most significant safety issues facing the rail industry and, in turn, lead to continued rail safety improvements. Only by continuing our understanding about how and why railroad accidents and incidents occur, can we hope to approach our goal of "Zero Tolerance."
This edition of the Railroad Safety Statistics compiles previous safety bulletins prepared by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). These include: the Accident/Incident Bulletin; the Highway-Rail Crossing Accident/Incident And Inventory Bulletin; and the Trespasser Bulletin. The consolidation of accident/incident statistics previously contained in other publications provides the reader with a single source for a comprehensive overview of railroad safety.
The completeness and accuracy of the information presented in this bulletin are primarily dependent upon the nation's railroad's data collection and reporting processes. The FRA conducts routine audits of these procedures, but does not have sufficient resources to perform comprehensive reviews of each railroad's reporting procedures. We extensively review and edit the reports we receive and make inquiry when information is incomplete or inconsistent.
