Video Funding:

Funding for the Safety Training Videos comes from proceeds of the NRC's Annual Railroad Construction and Maintenance Equipment Auction. Go to for more information.

Companies who contribute equipment to the NRC auction can either consign or donate that equipment. For equipment that is consigned, 3% of the sale proceeds go to the NRC Safety, Training and Education Fund. For donated equipment, 100% of the proceeds go the Fund.

The videos are rolled out 2 per year at the NRC Conference in January, and they have received widespread acclaim throughout the industry.

The NRC is proceeding forward with the production of additional videos to continue to promote safety in the workplace.

John Zuspan and Stanley Beaver are leading this effort, and doing an excellent job of it. Safety in the workplace is everyone's responsibility, and these videos are excellent tools to use to reinforce that.
