Short Line Safety Institute boots up new website


Today, the Short Line Safety Institute (SLSI) announced a newly redesigned website that was recently launched to better reflect the variety of programs and resources it offers to the short line industry.

Accessible at, the new site provides fast and easy access to programs and support materials, including hazardous materials and safety culture resources, and downloadable safety tips, SLSI officials said in a press release.

"Within a few days of [the site's] launch, we were managing requests for our new hazmat materials instructor training program, and generated a list of over 100 railroaders that want to be kept abreast of what SLSI is providing," said SLSI Executive Director Tom Murta.

Users also can use the new site to sign up for or review one of the institute's webinars; access an event calendar or register for upcoming events; or request an onsite safety culture assessment or hazmat training course for one or several railroads. The site was designed by Yes&, a Washington, D.C., marketing agency.

"We are looking forward to adding more products and training services soon," said Murta. "Our website … [allows] us to meet our organization’s primary mission — for the short line and regional railroad industry to perform at an increasingly high level of safety."
