  • Fatal Accidents Involving
    Boom/Crane Usage on RMMs
    Updated On: Dec 03, 2019

    The FAMES Committee reviewed available data from 9 fatal railroad accidents occurring since 1997 in which a boom on an RMM was in use.

    Roadway workers and machine operators can become engrossed in their tasks when assigned to work with or near boom-equipped RMMs  and various tasks often require ground workers to be in close proximity to the swing radius.

    The available data indicates that noise, communication challenges, machine operator line of sight, and the presence of moving loads increase the complexity of the task. These factors warrant heightened safety awareness and hazard mitigation.
