Ongoing Partnership with MBTA and MassDOT

Through our ongoing partnership with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), K&J Safety has been tasked with leading the revitalization, development, and implementation of the Authority’s DHS/TSA approved security training program for its roughly 10,000 Security Sensitive Employees across all six (6) required modes, which excludes ferry operations: heavy rail, light rail, fixed-route bus, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), commuter rail, and paratransit. The program is ~2.5 hours in length and is offered both online and instructor-led in-person by K&J staff. Our hybrid approach has maximized the MBTA’s ability to reach the greatest number of employees while remaining accessible for employees without regular access to a computer or the internet. Doing so allows the MBTA to ensure the one-year training window for current employees is met.

The training broadly covers the following subjects:

·         Roles, Responsibilities, and Notifications

·         Security Awareness

·         Emergency Management Awareness

·         Threat Preparedness and Response

   Active Shooter

 IEDs/Suspicious Activity

Vehicle Ramming

Natural Disasters

Conflict De-Escalation

·         Transit Vehicle Emergencies

·         Facility Emergencies

·         Security Sensitive Information

·         Personal Preparedness
