Benefits of Partnering with RTC
for Training & Consulting
Maximize Safety & Efficiency
We help you establish clear, standardized best practices. At the heart of our consulting services is the belief that safety training is about more than checking an item off your To-Do List or meeting FRA requirements—it’s about transforming the way you do business from the ground up. A well-thought-out safety program, put into practice correctly, can also increase your railroad’s efficiency, productivity, and employee retention. Good safety procedures require clear, consistent communication, which is exactly what our experienced instructors and consultants deliver.
Minimize Your Downtime
We come to you with custom schedules and courses. At RTC, we understand that you can’t afford long periods of downtime if you are going to be able to turn a profit. You have to keep your trains running on time. That’s why we offer all of our training and consulting services on-site, and on your schedule. Tell us what you want to accomplish, what your timeframe is, and which employees need training, and we’ll deliver a tailored program that will make your working environment safer without the added expense of taking your employees out of the workplace for training.
Minimize Your Risk
Outsourcing training centralizes and secures operational knowledge. By centralizing and streamlining your rules and procedures, you protect your rail operation from expensive data loss and the associated loss of productivity. When all of your operational knowledge is held by one or two key employees, your organization is vulnerable. Instead, partner with RTC to create a railroad or plant standard operations manual which is easily accessible by everyone through LogitracCBT. The more transparent your operations are, the safer and more rewarding your work environment becomes.
