Description

Bridge Safety Management Programs & The Inspector Module

The Bridge Safety Management Programs & the Inspector section introduces the entire AREMA Railway Bridge Inspection course.  It looks at the regulations and requirements that a railroad bridge inspector works under and then discusses the safety practices and tools the inspector commonly uses in meeting those requirements.

It does address the requirements in Canada and the US – noting where the requirements are similar and where some of the differences exist between the US’s Federal Railway Administration and Transport Canada Requirements.

This section is intended to explain why we do our inspections, the importance of the work we do and some of the tools, equipment and safety methods we use to complete those inspections.

Site Conditions Module

The Site Conditions Module takes a close look at practices and procedures concerning the areas around and approaching each bridge to be inspected 

This module addresses: 
•    What is there to see?
•    What does what we see mean?
•    How do we identify things?
•    Why do we identify things?
•    What is around the bridge that may affect it?

This module is intended as one of the basic tools any inspector will use to begin the inspection.
