Mobile based forms for completely paperless inspections
The Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) Final Rule has been published, which means it’s time to implement the Federal Transportation Administration’s (FTA) Safety Management System (SMS). Trackit is here to help you become compliant with SMS. Trackit provides all the tools you need to show that your safety plan meets SMS requirements and makes reporting on those requirements a breeze.
As a Transit agency receiving federal funds, it’s not enough to simply be safe; you also need to demonstrate that you have a safety plan in place. You need to be able to report on the concrete ways your organization tracks risk, communicates potential issues, and follows up on incidents. Without a means of easily tracking what’s going on in your organization, from operations, to safety, to training, to your various assets, it is nearly impossible to provide the sort of reporting SMS demands.
Paper forms and Spreadsheets won’t cut it
These new SMS requirements are an opportunity to ditch your paper forms and aging spreadsheets and migrate to a system that tracks everything for you. Trackit’s cloud based, tablet enabled assessments are all in one place. You never have to worry about pulling a file or tracking down a spreadsheet to figure out where your safety information is.
Likewise, Trackit automates the tracking and reporting of important issues within the system. If there’s an accident, the pertinent parties are automatically notified and there is a full audit trail of what was done. If there is a customer complaint, you have a full insight into where, when, and how the complaint came in. If the complaint needs to be addressed, you can assign it to someone within the system and track when it is
How We Help with SMS
Here are just a few of the ways Trackit can help you implement SMS and become compliant.
SMS Is Good For Transit
Even if you aren’t required to implement SMS, it’s still good for your agency. SMS encourages collaboration between agencies and employees to ensure cooperation on safety risk priorities. It also helps agencies be proactive in their safety risk analysis, which enhances safety across the agency. Building a safety culture through SMS supports safety communications and reporting: safety isn’t a segmented part of the organization, it’s the foundation of everything you do.
Trackit is your SMS Partner
Trackit is here to help you implement systems that enable you to log hazards, track remediation, demonstrate retraining and safety compliance, and take in customer feedback. Trackit’s systems are fully SMS compliant and are built to report your compliance to the FTA.
