Addressing a Vital Need in Railroad Safety
The FRA's Railroad Workplace Safety regulations play a pivotal role in ensuring worker safety. Still, many railway workers, who are not native English speakers, find the mandated English exams challenging. Spark TS has responded by offering this vital training in Spanish, aiming to facilitate better comprehension of essential safety protocols and procedures.
Features of the Spanish RWP Training include:
Accessibility: The training is available to Spanish-speaking employees and contractor workers.
Compliance with Regulations: The curriculum is designed to meet FRA 49 CFR 214 requirements and educates workers on critical safety rules and processes.
Inclusive Learning Environment: Participants can now understand and follow on-track safety protection procedures, participate actively in job safety briefings, and more, all in their native language
Extending Support to Small Railroads and Contractors
In line with our commitment to safety, Spark TS is providing the Spanish RWP training for free to contractors and Short Line railroads with fewer than 50 employees. This program will be available up to 250 individuals monthly until December, 2023. To apply, complete this form:
