Roadway Maintenance Machines (49 CFR 214 Subpart D)>
This program is designed for contractors and railroad employees who operate, inspect, or repair on-track roadway maintenance machines and hi-rail vehicles. The railroad training class provides guidance that enables companies to comply with 49 CFR 214 Subpart D, On-Track Roadway Maintenance Machines and Hi- Rail Vehicles. While this course does not address the necessary qualifications to operate specific equipment, it does outline what every operator of any roadway maintenance machine or hi-rail vehicle must know to ensure his or her equipment complies.
This video-based railway training program is divided into a Welcome section and three modules:
- Safety Briefing
- Facilitator and Participant Introductions
- Training Overview and Goals
- Module 1
- Terms and Definitions
- General Safety
- Module 2
- Visual and Audio Devices
- Environmental Systems
- Module 3
- Inspection and Repairs
- Good Faith Challenge
- Scheduling Repairs
Each module ends with Module Review quiz.
This class requires about 4 hours to complete. However, more experienced operators may require less class-time than a new operator with little or no experience.
The successful student of this course will have the knowledge and understanding necessary to become a safer machine operator through effective and compliant RMM and hi-rail inspections and up-keep. Following successful completion, each student will be provided a Certificate of Completion.
