We often help rail industry clients assess risk and identify alternatives to reduce risk when hazardous chemicals are transported. We have experience conducting transportation risk assessments to determine potential population, environmental, and infrastructure exposure during transportation if an incident and release were to occur. We also have experience integrating regulatory compliance, risk assessment, and emergency response planning into operational decision–making using a variety of innovative solutions.
Safety & Security
We help rail industry clients improve safety and security in transportation by providing specialized services that enhance situational awareness. We track security risks across North America and provide accessible and actionable reporting services to the railroads. We also provide GIS-based web services for enhanced communication and visualization of safety & security risks.
We help rail industry clients comply with the regulations by providing advanced, GIS-based, data analytics and information management support. With our expertise, we routinely help rail industry clients comply with complex Federal safety & security planning, routing, and analysis requirements (49 CFR 172.800 – Safety and Security Plans), oil spill response plan (OSRP) requirements for high-hazard flammable trains (49 CFR Par 130 – Oil Spill Prevention and Response Plans), special permit and approval applications (49 CFR 107 Subpart B – Special Permits and Subpart H – Approvals, Registrations and Submissions), and many other regulatory and industry requirements.
