  • raise managers’ awareness of the potentially negative effects of critical incidents on locomotive engineers and train conductors in the rail industry and other transportation industries; 
  • share recommendations with them regarding the best critical incident management and employee support practices; and
  • inform them of the benefits of strictly applying a critical incident management and support protocol (CIMSP).
