In July 2019, K&J, through CUTR with FTA’s guidance and approval, was tasked to develop an industry level Incident Investigation Manual as a guidance document for the State Safety Oversight (SSO) and Transit Agencies use in support of implementing the agency SMS program and Agency Safety Plan (ASP). This initiative was recommended to the CUTR/FTA Research Team by the CUTR/FTA Transit Safety Standards Working Group that has representatives from transit agencies across the United States and transit focused safety consulting firms.
