Unsafe Walking Conditions
Every year, many railroaders are injured as a result of unsafe ground/walking conditions. While railroaders can be seriously injured in a single falling incident, they can also be injured as a result of cumulative trauma – meaning they are injured as a result of walking on unsafe ground conditions over the course of their railroad careers. Unsafe ground condition injuries are not limited to the feet and legs, but can include injuries to the spine, as well as injuries to the upper extremities and head in the case of a fall.
Virtually any foreign object on the ground in a rail yard or along a railroad track can create an unsafe ground condition.
While this is by no means an exhaustive list of unsafe ground/walking conditions, it does identify common unsafe conditions, and the catastrophic injuries which can result when the railroad permits unsafe ground/walking conditions to exist.
