Safety First

Rule #1 -- Don't get hurt.

    Safety is the first priority. Er, or is it the second, after money.... Or the third after getting the trains out....

So it takes CSX 13 years to match the 1.3 billion miles traveled by
Wal-Mart trucks in two years. Wal-Mart had nine fatalities in 1.3
BILLION miles traveled and CSX will have over 1,300 killed at the
current CSX kill rate. Instead of safe they need blood dripping off
their website.

There's always a reason why averages are kept low. Sometimes it's not
CSX. It's about making money it's always been that way. Some of your
fellow railroaders like getting out on their rest. If you think
averages are low then go to the union meeting and bring it up.
Complaining and doing nothing doesn't work. The only thing that the
union doesn't have any say in is the gaurenteed extra board that was
one of the concessions to get it.

When CSX managers receive their annual performance appraisals, it seems
likely that employee tests and failures would be a major evaluating
factor. The same goes for on-time train departures and operating with
as few employees as possible. And it seems very unlikely that employee
morale has anything at all to do with the process. It also seems to me
that safety programs on the class one railroads have morphed into
nothing short of harassment programs. And FRA is a cheerleader for all
of this. Constant employee testing and failures make it look as if both
the railroads and FRA are really serious about safety. But the fact is
that railroads are really only serious about their stock prices and
Wall Street standings. And of course the FRA is only serious about
being a bureaucratic government agency that tries to please everyone,
especially the railroads it is supposed to be regulating. And with all
of the serious railroad accidents that have recently been occurring,
FRA's house needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. And it needs to
start focusing on how the harassment of employees and unethical call
practices are having a negative effect on safety.

PEOPLES HOMES AND LEAVING VAGUE BOGUS MESSAGES ABOUT JOBS THEY ARE
CALLING AND HOW THE IVR SYSTEM IS STILL SET UP TO ENTRAP PEOPLE BY NOT
LETTING THEM ACCESS TRUE AND ACCURATE INFO ABOUT THEIR OWN STANDINGS
AND POOL LINE UPS AFTER THE CALLERS HAVE STARTED RUNNING THE ROSTERS.
SURE IS FUNNY HOW YOU CANT GET ANY INFO WITHOUT BEING TRANSFERED TO A
CREW CALLER FOR IT. FUNNY HOW IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THEY ARE RUNNING
ROSTERS AND NEED SOMEONE TO DESPERATELY MAKE THAT MISTAKE AND TALK TO
ONE OF THEM TO THEY CAN ORDER THEM ON THE JOB. SO FUNNY HOW THE IVR
SYSTEM MAGICALLY CORRECTS ITSELF AFTER THEY HAVE THE VACANT JOB FILLED.

Being a CSX manager is one of the biggest jokes that I have seen in
years. You people think you are Gods. You're a fish on a big hook.  A
puppet, clown. CSX ONLY PICKS UP MANAGERS THAT NO  OTHER COMPANY WANTS.
Just take a look and see..   So keep strutting you piss ants... Jokes on

Don't make my mistake and not invest in CSX. I too had an attitude
against it while working. I made the mistake of investing in mutual
funds while in the BLE 401K. After the crash in 2008 whatever was left
which was around 25% I put it all in CSX. Since then it's increased
over 500%. It's not about CSX it's about making money grow. Every
CEO, COO, CFO ect...in corporations gets stock options. I'm just
saying don't be blinded by frustration. Every generation on the
railroad has had changes and it wasn't easy to adjust.

Chugga, Chugga

You hit the nail on the head.  CSX's upper management could care less
about their T&E Employees.  All they care about is lining their pockets
and selling their well subsidized stock while we T%E people are out here
breaking our back, working on jointed rail, and dealing with the
incompetent management that they like to promote.  

When I heard about a possible CSX CP merger, I was elated. Then a
friend pointed out what I knew, but had ignored.  CSX has one of the
oldest engine fleets of any Class 1.   Compared to other Class 1
railroads, CSX has the smallest and oldest fleet of rail cars that they
rent to their customers.  CSX has a huge debt to equity ratio.  Don't
even get me going on how the MOW guys say the ways they are ordered to
skip on maintenance in order to save a few dollars this month so that
they can spend several thousand dollars "out of another budget" when
the problem they could have fixed quickly initially, gets much much
worse.  

Everyone is correct.  CSX will jump over a dollar to save a dime, then
write about it in one of their monthly division rags.  When upper
management gets wind of this, they turn around and brag about how they
saved a dime while jumping over a dollar to Wall Street.  All the
while, unfortunately, investors who actually know about railroading are
laughing their arse off at CSX for having a bunch of incompetent idiots
that failed in their previous careers as managers, as their leaders. 
Need an example?  Look at Oscar.  He helped run Pepsi Co into the
ground before he was thrown out.  Tony Ingram.  He was on the verge of
being fired at NS before Michael Ward hired him.  Michael Ward. He's
never worked a day in his life on the railroad.  He use to manage a
moving company that he ran into the ground until CSX plucked him up.

What is up with CSX hiring managers that other companies are on the
verge of firing for being incompetent?  Does CSX's management figure
if they surround themselves with idiots, it will help make themselves
look better, and intellectually superior?  If anyone knows the answer
to this, I am all ears.

While I am ranting.  I am sorry to see that Piss Poor excuse for a
human, Pines is back on this site.  I was hoping he was still in jail,
blocked, or I hate to say this, dead. What a waste of sperm and egg. 
Here he is taking up time and space, and breathing air and eating food
that would better served going to a dog in the humane society on death
row.  Pines.  You need to find better things to do with your life. 
There is probably a reason your wife opted to commit suicide by train,
and I'm guessing that was to get away from you.

According to company officials, its high-tech cab was equipped with
sophisticated collision-avoidance systems that included forward-looking
radar with interactive cruise control —all designed to begin
automatically braking the big truck when it sensed traffic slowing
down.

It was programmed to notify the driver of any vehicles stopped ahead in
the roadway. There was an on-board computer, blind spot sensors, and
electronic controls limiting its top speed to 65 miles per hour.

With this equipment wally world trucks with a .67 deaths per 100
million VMT rate which is 1/2 of the 1.4 deaths per 100 million VMT for
all big trucks saved 9 lives in two years. With train track safety
equipment missing railroads murder 100s of year and have didsticks like
L@N phoney dispatcher who was found in a benjo ditch eating railroad
crap to try to hide the facts.

So let's see. Wally World trucks killed 9 people in 667 million miles
traveled given plus one would assume it would be around another 667
million miles the second year not given. Total 9 deaths in one billion
three hundred thirty four million. In one billion three hundred thirty
four million miles traveled CSX trains kill 1334 people which is 1325
more than wally world trucks or a 148 killed by CSX to 1 person killed
by wally world trucks.
Wally world trucks kill one person every 1,482,222 which is a .67
killed in 100 million truck miles while CSX kills 100 people in  100
million miles traveled. Guess railroad dispatches have to clueless on
math to get the train there on time. Tee the idiot is in a million mile
mode ---duh what about the other 99 million miles Tee idiot? .67 for
wally world would be well below the 1.4 for the rest of trucking.
There's probally 9th grade math books on line for you dum dums!!!

DETROIT (CBSNewYork/AP) — The accident that injured comedian Tracy
Morgan and killed a passenger on his limo bus was one of hundreds of
crashes involving Walmart trucks in the past two years.
Walmart trucks have been involved in 380 crashes in that time, federal
data shows. Nine people have been killed; 129 have been injured.
It’s unclear how Walmart’s safety record compares with other carriers.
The company did earn the government’s highest safety rating when it
was
last reviewed a decade ago.
Walmart has 6,239 trucks and 7,222 drivers, according to the Federal
Motor Carrier Safety Administration. They drove 667 million miles last
year.
The Bentonville, Arkansas, company is one of the largest private
carriers in the U.S., after Coca-Cola, Pepsi and food service company
Sysco, according to Transport Topics, an industry newspaper.

Pines, your math skills are horrible. And I can see it without a
calculator. Using round numbers, 114,000,000 miles and 103 deaths
right? That's slightly over 1 death per million miles. 103 deaths
divided by 114,000,000. 1.07 deaths per million miles. Retard.

Driving an 80,000 tractor trailer covering hundreds of thousands of
miles is an awesome responsibility. Truckers and trucking corporations
must be vigilant about safety. The National Transportation Safety Board
("NTSB") lists the following as some of the most common causes of big
rig accidents:

Poor Driver Training Driver Fatigue (Tiredness) Speeding Overloaded
Trucks Oversized Trucks Brake Failure Poor Driving Conditions Driver
Inexperience Failure To Yield The Right-Of-Way Driving Under The
Influence of Alcohol Or Drugs Aggressive, Dangerous Or Reckless Driving
Mechanical Failure (Or Improper Maintenance) Defective Parts (Such As
Defective Steering Or Brakes)

Truckers and trucking companies must be mindful of each of these
trucking accident causes.

Driver fatigue is a particularly dangerous -- and completely
preventable -- cause of trucking accidents.

500,000 accidents and over 100,000 deaths and serious injury due to
truck drivers.

Tractor trailer accident statistics show that the roads of the United
States witness over 500,000 accidents each year. This is according to
data released by The United States Department of Transportation.
Unfortunately, a high number of these types of accidents end in
fatalities. This is due to the size of these monster vehicles that
travel between states carrying cargo that can put these trucks at more
than 80,000 pounds each.

What is even scarier about these statistics is that a high percentage
of tractor trailer accidents are caused not by the driver of the truck.
It is the driver of smaller vehicles that were involved in a crash,
which is usually the cause in error of judgment. In such accidents, the
driver in the smaller vehicle will most likely sustain a serious injury.
On the flip side of that, many of these types of accidents will most
likely end in fatalities. Does a 4-wheel car really have a chance
against an 18-wheel truck?

Driving while under the influence of alcohol and other drugs is seen as
a possible cause of tractor trailer accidents. But according to
statistics, the number of accidents caused by a drunken truck driver is
very low. There are a higher percentage of accidents due to driving
under the influence, which faults the passenger vehicle. Driving while
under the influence, will impair all motor skills, and might cause you
to come face to face with a truck.

Fatigue caused by driving countless hours is found to be the leading
cause of tractor trailer accidents in the United States.
