Deputy Chief of Highway Safety to Speak at Hopkins

"The Role of the National Transportation Safety Board" will be the topic of a lecture at noon on Wednesday, March 27, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Bruce A. Magladry, deputy chief of the NTSB's Highway Safety Office will talk about how the board handles more than 44,000 transportation fatalities each year and the impact those accidents have on American society. Magladry will explain how the NTSB's independent accident investigations lead to changes in governmental policy and industrial standards.

Magladry joined the NTSB in 1998 as a "human factors" specialist investigating and analyzing operator behavior in all modes of transportation. In that role, he investigated the Silver Spring MARC train accident, the New Orleans ship and shopping-mall accident, and the TWA Flight 800 explosion off Long Island. Prior to joining the NTSB, Magladry was a detective in the Baltimore County Police Department.

This lecture is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 36th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. Wednesday Noon Series events are open to the public and admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
