FRA's Fatiguefit Risk Management Program

On June 13, 2022 the Federal Rail Administration released their Fatigue Risk Management Programs rule for Class 1 railroads, railroad carriers with insufficient safety performance, and those that provide intercity or commuter rail passenger transportation.

Fatiguefit’s VP US Operations Mike Brazytis talked with global FRM expert Professor Drew Dawson about the implications of the Rule for railroads. Their conversation covered fatigue risk management, the challenges for implementing the Rule and where railroads can go to seek help with compliance.
