Fatality Analysis of Maintenance-of-way Employees and Signalmen (FAMES)

The Fatality Analysis of Maintenance-of-way Employees and Signalmen (FAMES) Committee was formed by FRA in collaboration with railroad labor and management representatives as an ad-hoc, voluntary, consensus-based committee. 

The FAMES Committee analyzes fatalities and other incidents, focusing on identifying risks, trends, and factors affecting roadway worker safety. The FAMES Committee will periodically issue findings and recommendations to reduce the risk of future occurrences and eliminate fatalities to roadway workers.
