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 15th consecutive year in 2020, 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.
