FRA and NTSB Cite Fatigue as Contributing to Railroad Accidents

Posted on Mar 11, 2010
My colleague wrote about the growing problem of fatigue and human error in railroad accidents. According to a study by the FRA, 40 percent of rail wrecks are due to human mistakes and 1 in 4 of these incidents are due to fatigue. The NTSB has recommended technology and fatigue management systems to help combat this issue.
