Unfortunately With The Carrier furloughing so many of our Mechanical brothers and sisters, we will be required to do more daily locomotive inspections.
Remember these are not suggestions they are requirements to ensure that each locomotive operates safely and efficiently . As the Carrier keeps touting utilization of its assets (of which you are included) Lets not let their bottom line compromise your safety. It is the carriers responsibility to provide a safe workplace from toepaths to locomotives.
Attached is checklist to use when doing a daily inspection. The checklist was created using the Airbrake and Train Handling portion of the GCOR.
