Virginia Operator To Speak At National Safety Conference

Posted on August 21, 2013

RICHMOND, VA – The National Transportation Safety Board has invited James River Transportation President Stephen Story to speak at a forum addressing the importance of safety culture in transportation on Sept. 10-11 in Washington, D.C.

The forum is titled, "Safety Culture: Enhancing Transportation Safety." The forum will be held in the NTSB Board Room and Conference Center, 429 L'Enfant Plaza E., S.W., Washington, D.C. The public can view the forum in person or by live webcast. Webcast archives are generally available by the end of the next day following the forum, and webcasts are archived for three months from after the date of the event.

"In our accident investigations we have seen instances of weak or non-existent safety cultures," said NTSB Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman. "In this forum, we want to highlight what's present in strong safety cultures as well as identify what works to build these cultures in order to more effectively prevent accidents."

The forum will review the progress and innovations that have been made in developing safety cultures throughout the transportation community and pinpoint areas where there are opportunities for improvements. Participants — including operators, labor groups and oversight authorities — will outline their roles, responsibilities and methods for developing effective safety cultures, with emphasis on the remaining challenges and steps needed for further improvements.

James River Transportation is the only ground passenger company to be invited to the forum. A detailed agenda and list of participants is available on the forum web page.

The company also has on-site operations at Richmond International Airport and Norfolk International Airport.
