Hazardous Materials: Notice of Applications for Special Permits, 2334-2335 [2019-01296]

Download as PDF amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 2334 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 25 / Wednesday, February 6, 2019 / Notices assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2018–0100. Specifically, NS proposes to create a 3D simulation using web-based software to satisfy the ‘‘hands-on’’ portion of the training required by 49 CFR 232.203(e), in connection with periodic refresher training. Refresher training is required at intervals not to exceed 3 years, and shall consist of classroom and hands-on training, as well as testing. NS states that due to the velocity of their operations network, it is often difficult to provide a consistent training and testing environment regarding car selection, defects, and availability. Further, NS contends that this proposal’s one-on-one training will be more conducive to learning than a group setting. The NS proposal will simulate a Class I Brake Test and places the user in a virtual 3D scenario requiring concrete responses to an array of preprogrammed defects on various types of freight cars and brake systems while performing the brake test. To successfully complete the scenario, the user must identify key components and identify and correct all defects, including but not limited to closed cut-out cocks, uncoupled air hoses, closed angle cocks, wrongly positioned retainer valves, and fouled brake rigging. NS seeks to apply this waiver system wide to all NS craft personnel responsible for performing freight air brakes tests, including supervisors, freight car repair personnel, and conductors. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.
