When it comes to Texas traffic, no one knows it better than the Texas Department of Transportation or TxDOT. While TxDOT helps manage the construction and maintenance of our local road systems, they are also involved in overseeing aviation, railways, and the various public transportation systems throughout Texas. As Lubbock accident attorneys, we often see the the tragic results of accidents on these transportation systems. Recently, TxDOT became the first agency in the United States to help its employees earn the Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals (SCTPP) endorsed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
The SCTPP is a test created by safety experts under the name American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) utilizing guidelines developed by ANSI. The goal is to identify core safety capabilities that can serve as international standards for the transportation infrastructure industry. The information they gathered was then utilized to develop an exam to test the knowledge and understanding of core safety capabilities.
Now that TxDOT has earned the SCTPP certification, it will have access to round-the-clock prep courses. The courses themselves have been pre-approved for professional development hours in the 38 states that follow the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying Model Rules and also meet engineer licensing requirements in North Carolina, New York, and Florida.
In the fiscal year of 2019, 500 of TxDOT’s employees will be able to participate in the certification. While Texans work to improve roadways and traffic systems, we are also making the streets safer to drive on. The Lubbock accident attorneys at Liggett Law Group could not be more happy or proud of Texans making the roads safer for everyone.
