Belt Railway of Chicago signs up for e-RAILSAFE ShortLine

Written by 

The Belt Railway Company of Chicago is now a subscriber to e-RAILSAFE ShortLine, a unique workforce management service from e-VERIFILE.COM Inc. that assists shortline and regional railroad operators with workplace safety/security management.

BRC is the largest intermediate switching terminal railroad in the United States, with more than 300 miles of switching tracks and approximately 425 employees. The company processes 2.5 million railcars per year and provides interchange service to virtually every railroad serving the Chicago rail hub. 

BRC administrators will be able to utilize ERS-ShortLine for routine workforce management tasks involving personnel screening, resource management, compliance awareness and workplace credentialing. The entire process is managed from one web-based platform that is accessible via ERS-ShortLine requires no additional software or equipment and can be securely accessed from any PC. 

e-RAILSAFE ShortLine (ERS-ShortLine) is a part of the e-RAILSAFE line of branded services and is based on the successful e-RAILSAFE Class 1 program instituted by the seven major railroads operating in the United States. Like the Class 1 program, ERS-ShortLine railroad software enables administrators to streamline their workplace safety and security management efforts via compliance programs that they create in the system.
