ASLRRA accepting nominations for annual 'safety person' award


The American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) is accepting nominations for the 5th Annual Safety Person of the Year Award, which recognizes a railroad employee's efforts to improve safety.

"This program is specifically designed to recognize railroad employees that not only talk about safety, but also are prime examples of what safety truly means on our railroads," ASLRRA officials said in the association's newsletter. "Any railroad employee is eligible for this award — as long as they are extremely safety minded in word, thought and action, and are able to demonstrate their commitment to safety.

ASLRRA will accept nominations until March 11, 2005. The association will present the award at its annual meeting and exhibition, to be held April 3-5, 2005, in Anaheim, Calif.
