Richmond, V.A.—President Stephen Story of James River Transportation, a full-service transportation provider and event planning organization, was invited by the National Transportation Safety Board to speak at a forum on developing a stronger safety culture across the transportation industry.

The forum was held September 10-11 in Washington, D.C., and reviewed what has gone into effectively creating safety cultures as well as areas where the industry could use improvement. Operators, labor groups, and oversight authorities were present and made clear their duties in developing these cultures.

"In our accident investigations we have seen instances of weak or non-existent safety cultures," says NTSB Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman. "In this forum, we wanted 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.”
