Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Emergency Escape Breathing Apparatus Standards
FRA is proposing to amend its regulations to require that railroads provide an appropriate atmosphere-supplying emergency escape breathing apparatus to every train crew member and certain other employees while they are occupying a locomotive cab of a freight train transporting a hazardous material that would pose an inhalation hazard in the event of release during an accident.
