Culture of safety


CP has long been an industry leader in rail safety and we are more focused on it than ever, committed to protecting our people, our communities, our environment and our customers' goods. Safety is one of our five foundations of successful railroading and it starts with knowing and following the rules. We are increasing safety inspections, carrying out more internal awareness campaigns and requiring our general managers to pass examinations on rules and regulations.

CP Home SafeTM

CP Home Safe is an initiative designed to improve our safety culture by tapping into the human side of safety and promoting both safety engagement and feedback.

CP Home Safe training sessions culminate in each employee's commitment to the ongoing reinforcement of our CP Home Safe actions: 

  • give a heads-up
  • offer and ask for help
  • warn people who you believe are putting themselves or others at risk
  • identify, report, and remove hazards

By instilling in our people the importance of taking responsibility for their own safety as well as the safety of their co-workers, we can better ensure everyone goes home safe after each and every shift.
