Railroad Safety Concerns: Poor Working Conditions

Railroad workers have an incredibly demanding job. Not only is the job physically exhausting, but the modern demands of the industry often force railroad workers to work under sub-par conditions. Many railroad workers accept their poor working conditions, thinking that nothing can be done to change the situation. This could not be further from the truth.

Poor working conditions may stem from one of the following:

  • Poorly trained co-workers
  • Equipment that is either too old or not properly maintained
  • Not enough manpower for the job (small crews)
  • Not enough time allotted for tasks (time crunch)
  • Pressure from management to ignore injuries
  • Fatigue from overworked crew members

If you are facing any of the hardships listed above, be aware that you are protected by the Federal Employer’s Liability Act. Passed in 1908 by Congress, the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA) protects railroad employees from injuries that may have been caused by the negligent actions of their employer.

Under FELA laws, your employer is required to provide you and your co-workers with proper training, safe working environments, and safe equipment to complete your tasks. If you have been injured because your employer negligently failed to provide you with the proper training, working environment, or equipment, contact an attorney to discuss your legal options.
