E-Training Available for School Bus Drivers

from NAPT

Operation Lifesaver, Inc. (OLI), a non-profit organization providing public education campaigns to prevent collisions, injuries and fatalities on and around railroad tracks and highway-rail grade crossings, recently created e-training specifically for school bus drivers. This e-Learning Program is an interactive online experience for public and private school bus drivers. The program brings attention to choices bus drivers often make around tracks and trains and is intended to help bus drivers make safer decisions around the tracks.

We have informed OLI that there may be a need to supplement the training with materials local operators currently use because of state, local or company policy. If you decide to use the OLI e-training, we highly recommend your Risk Manager, Director of Safety, Driver Trainer(s) and/or other safety personnel evaluate the OLI program content first to ensure it meets your state and/or districts' training standards and requirements.

Representatives of NAPT, NASDPTS and NSTA are planning to meet with OLI later this year to discuss this matter. We will, of course, keep you apprised.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact NAPT Executive Director Mike Martin at mike.martin@napt.org. more
