Emergency Railroad Bridge Inspections

07/20/2022 - 12/31/2022

Emergency railroad bridge incidents happen without warning, often far from the railroad bridge inspector's home base and at unusual hours. This course makes it possible for a broad range of highly capable employees to act as competent observers, so they can relay critical information to an offsite railroad bridge expert. Frontline MOW employees, managers, consultants, and individuals involved with railroad infrastructure and security can all benefit from this short online course that introduces you to the technical, procedural, and safety aspects of emergency railroad bridge inspection.
