Who's Doing What in the Industry

LOS ANGELES—The National Safety Council recently honored Phillip A. Washington, chief executive officer of Los Angeles Metro and APTA immediate past chair, as one of only seven “CEOs Who Get It”—and the only one in the transportation industry—selected by Safety + Health Magazine, the council’s official publication. The designation refers to development of a culture of safety in the workplace that requires courage, conviction and commitment.

WASHINGTON, DC—The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority has named Patrick Lavin its new chief safety officer, effective May 9. He has more than 30 years of experience. Lavin joined MTA New York City Transit in 1983 as a signal maintainer’s helper and now is second in command of its Office of System Safety. He also volunteers as an associate staff member for DOT’s Transportation Safety Institute, where he teaches the Advanced Rail Incident  Investigation course.
