Local 689 President Says WMATA has 'Woefully Neglected' a Culture of Safety
The deadly smoke incident at L’Enfant Plaza Metro station on January 12, 2015 shook the entire DMV region. It has also exposed that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has woefully neglected its commitment to a safety culture that can save the lives of riders and workers. The cornerstone of a safety culture for Metro should be an environment where Metro employees feel empowered and welcome to identify accidents and potential hazards. WMATA leadership continues to fail miserably at cultivating this environment.
