|Nominations Open for Bus and Rail Safety Excellence Awards|
APTA is currently accepting nominations for the 2014 Bus and Rail Safety & Security Excellence Awards through March 1 for bus and April 1 for rail. This year marks the centennial of the public transit safety awards program through APTA and its predecessor organizations.
Nominated agencies that receive the top honor in each category will receive recognition at the APTA Bus and Rail conferences as industry leaders that have implemented industry-leading, innovative safety and security practices.
The nominations process for public transit agencies is as follows:
* Find a successful program/project to highlight. It should have achieved organizational safety, security, or emergency preparedness objectives. Possible areas of interest could include training, hazard identification, accident/incident analysis, information technology applications, industrial/workplace safety, internal safety campaigns, or public relations/outreach.
* Visit the bus awards website or the rail awards website to see the detailed nomination instructions and evaluation criteria. Successful nominations address each of the four criteria listed—effectiveness, benefit level, innovation, and transferability—and provide adequate supporting data.
* Access and fill out the online submission form at the above websites, then attach the written nomination along with supporting materials.
