During Rail Safety Week, CP, the rail industry, government, police, unions, and many public organizations and community groups work together to highlight safe practices around railway property
At CP, we know that operating safely is integral to our long-term success. It's not just a requirement for doing business, it's part of who we are.
This unwavering commitment to safety is why CP led the industry for the 14th consecutive year in 2019, with the lowest Federal Railroad Administration reportable train accident frequency (per million train miles) among Class 1 railroads in North America.
In 2017 CP launched CP RailSense, a new safety program aimed at preventing incidents involving the public. The goal of the program is simple - encourage safe behaviour around tracks and trains and eliminate injuries and fatalities.
Through a variety of community outreach initiatives,
CP RailSense shines a light on the dangers of trespassing on, near or around train tracks in order to prevent any incidents involving trains and the public.
We continually strive to make the transportation of dangerous goods as safe as possible.
The CP Police Service works closely with communities, other law enforcement and government agencies to promote railway safety and infrastructure security. We have police officers assigned to over 25 field offices responsible for railway police operations across the Canadian Pacific rail network as well as in areas where we have non-railway operations.
