Cority Streamlines Incident Management for Class II Railroads in the United States

Enhancement to industry-leading Incident Management solution simplifies compliance with the Federal Railroad Administration

Toronto, Canada, November 2, 2017 – Cority, the most trusted Environmental, Health, Safety and Quality (EHSQ) software for assuring client success, today announced enhancements to its Incident Management solution to enable more efficient completion and submission of U.S. Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) incident forms. Available in the company’s Safety and Environmental SaaS offerings, this enhancement makes Cority the first software provider in the market to deliver this functionality to help FRA-regulated organizations maintain compliance.

Keeping up to date with FRA requirements remains difficult for the many EHS departments using legacy, homegrown systems to enable compliance management. Designed to simplify this process, Cority’s enhanced Incident Management solution ensures EHS professionals always have the latest regulatory required content, without having to depend on in-house IT teams to make routine system updates.

“To monitor railroad safety and mitigate risk, the FRA requires Class II railroads to maintain compliance with stringent reporting requirements,” said John Easton, Director of Product Management, Cority. “EHS professionals are tasked with completing six different forms each time an incident occurs, which can be time-consuming and error-prone. We added all the required fields to streamline this process for our clients, enabling them to seamlessly capture critical FRA-specific data from within our Incident Management solution. Reports can then be generated and submitted to the FRA through their electronic reporting system. This is another example of how Cority leads the market with industry-specific functionality and integration out-of-the-box, enhancing the value of your EHS software investment.”

Key components of Cority’s enhanced Incident Management solution include:

Data Collection and Investigation captures, manages and analyzes comprehensive data for FRA-specific incidents with the addition of all FRA-required form fields.

FRA Form Generation
expedites form completion by automatically generating completed PDFs for FRA Forms 54, 55, 55a, 57, 97, and 98.

Recordkeeping and Reporting streamlines the reporting process to the FRA, making form submission more efficient and easier for organizations to stay compliant with FRA requirements.
