Railroad Workplace Safety; Roadway Worker Protection Miscellaneous Revisions (RRR)

Final rule; retrospective regulatory review (RRR).
FRA is amending its Roadway Worker Protection (RWP) regulation to resolve interpretative issues that have arisen since the 1996 promulgation of that rule. In particular, this final rule adopts certain terms, resolves miscellaneous interpretive issues, codifies certain FRA Technical Bulletins, adopts new requirements governing redundant signal protections and the movement of roadway maintenance machinery over signalized non-controlled track, and amends certain qualification requirements for roadway workers. This final rule also deletes three outdated incorporations by reference of industry standards in FRA's Bridge Worker Safety Standards, and cross references the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) regulations on the same point.
