TSA to Require Security Training

The Transportation Security Administration will require effective June 22 railroads and public transit agencies to provide security training to certain employees to help them identify terrorist-related threats.

The requirement is part of a new rule recently published in the Federal Register.

The rule applies to higher-risk freight railroad carriers, public transportation agencies, passenger railroads and bus companies.

They must provide TSA-approved security training to employees performing security-sensitive functions.

“The training curriculum must teach employees how to observe, assess and respond to terrorist-related threats and/or incidents,” the rule states.

The rule also pertains to security coordinators and the reporting of security concerns to include bus operations. Currently, that requirement applies only to rail operations.
