We view the safety and security of residents in the communities in which we operate and that of our employees as our top priority. When drivers and pedestrians ignore signage at railway crossings and along our right-of-way, they put their lives at risk. These significant and unnecessary personal risks often tragically result in death or severe injuries. The impact of these deaths and injuries is far reaching: Employee traumatic stress, families torn apart, communities in mourning and train operations suspended. By having ongoing conversations with media and providing education and enforcement to community members of all ages, we strive to save lives, protect the mental health of our employees and neighbours, and prevent service disruption.
We challenge all North Americans to be rail safety ambassadors to help spread the word that one incident is one too many.
