MITRE and Metro Announce Partnership to Strengthen Safety Management System

The Metro-MITRE partnership will advance safety culture maturity, improve safety data analytics, and establish an industry-leading Voluntary Safety Reporting Program

MITRE and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) are pleased to announce a collaboration that is designed to strengthen Metro’s Safety Management System (SMS).

“This partnership with MITRE is a cornerstone of our safety strategy, and we look forward to bringing MITRE’s subject matter expertise to the transit industry.”

Over the course of a three-year contract, MITRE will work with Metro to assess their safety culture, develop a plan to improve their safety data analytics, and deploy a secure Voluntary Safety Reporting Program (VSRP). The VSRP will produce data that can be integrated with other Metro safety information to continuously improve their data-driven safety risk management. Once implemented, the VSRP will lower barriers to safety and hazard reporting and elevate Metro’s safety protocols.

Establishing Metro’s safety culture baseline will formalize leadership’s understanding of where the agency is and where it needs to go in terms of maturing their safety culture. The reporting program will provide Metro employees with the ability to report safety hazards voluntarily and confidentially. The data captured from those reports will be analyzed, enabling proactive, data-driven identification and management of safety hazards, leading to a safer transit experience for Metrorail, Metrobus, and paratransit riders.

“Metro’s vision is to become the industry leader in safety, and we intend to realize this vision by developing a world-class SMS,” said Metro executive vice president and chief safety officer Theresa Impastato. “This partnership with MITRE is a cornerstone of our safety strategy, and we look forward to bringing MITRE’s subject matter expertise to the transit industry.”
