Railroad workers at risk from employers and the general public

Many people in Louisiana and beyond earn their livings at Amtrak or other railway systems in the nation. Whether you're a conductor, engineer or line worker, you no doubt understand the tremendous safety risks involved on the job. Railroad work consistently ranks high on lists citing the most dangerous jobs in America. Sometimes, such risks come from motorists and other members of the public. Just as traffic safety analysts consider intersections extremely dangerous areas on the road, in the train world, officials can say the same about railroad crossings.

Hopefully, your employer has provided proper training and all available equipment to keep you as safe as possible on the job. It's always a good idea to be especially alert at a railroad crossing, however. If your job involves physically standing on the tracks in such areas (perhaps for maintenance reasons) you are greatly at risk for injury. Knowing the dangers ahead of time and where to seek help if an accident occurs are high priorities for all railroad workers.
