Safety Advocate Briefing for January 12, 2017


First we have added some new files to the Safety Page.  The contract transportation complaint form and the van safety audit and briefing have been added.

If there are any safety issues, please utilize the unsafe condition reporting tool.  This tool will immediately notify members of the Safety Advocate program to be corrected quickly as possible.

This briefing is provided by union volunteers who are not being compensated by the BNSF. We are here to listen, learn and serve.

    3. Slow down and take your time coming into restrictions and stops.

New Unsafe Condition Reporting Tool

New Tool Launched!

The Unsafe Condition Reporting Tool has been launched. This tool will allow for reporting unsafe conditions to the union for handling through the Safety Advocate System.

We also ask that you please still utilize the SIRP report process also!

Future features will be coming at a later time, such as upload a picture of the unsafe condition.  At this time if you have a photograph of the unsafe condition you can forward it to

This system will take reports from anybody, weather they are a member of BLET 104 or not.  Please spread the word.

Thank you!
