Unfortunately, our train crews do sometimes face incidents that can have a significant emotional impact on them. These include incidents involving trespassers on our rights-of-way and incidents involving vehicles or pedestrians at crossings. When a critical incident does occur, CP implements our Critical Incident Response Program (CIRP). CIRP is designed to provide timely assistance to employees who have experienced traumatic events and to comply with Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Regulations 49 CFR Part 272. The primary goal of this program is to support employees as they work through the normal reactions following a workplace incident or traumatic event.
This program is administered through the Company's EAP. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding CP's Critical Incident Response Program, you may seek clarification directly from CP's Designated Employer Representative at
