This section will provide supervisors with a working knowledge of the event recorder on-board and playback components. It will allow managers to increase their skills and competencies in conducting event recorder analysis as well as development of formal data custody and retention programs.<br /><br />Day three of the seminar will focus on Designated Supervisor of Locomotive Engineer (DSLE) responsibilities and the application and administration of 49 CFR Part 240.
