A messge from Stephen Covey, CN Chief Security Officer and Chief of Police
Join forces to help CN Spread the Rail Safety Message
This year, Rail Safety Week will be held in Canada, the United States and Mexico from September 20 - 26.
Operation Lifesaver, and its partners, created Rail Safety Week in 2003 to raise public awareness of the potential dangers at railway crossings and from trespassing on railway property. Since then the momentum has grown and together with our partners at Operation Lifesaver, CN will join forces again this year to promote public rail safety in communities throughout our network across North America. Come join our CN Rail Safety Week team!
Railway Safety is a Shared Responsibility
Rail safety never takes a break and, despite the ongoing pandemic, CN, along with Operation Lifesaver, our communities and local authorities, CN Police officers and other CN employees, helps prevent accidents and injuries at rail crossings to ensure everyone’s safety on and around railroad infrastructure year-round.
Like last year, our activities will emphasize online tools and social media. I am pleased to share some of these tools with you and would be very grateful if you could help promote railway safety in the days leading up to and during Rail Safety Week by sharing them with the community organizations in which you are involved.
I would also like to ask you for a personal favour: please use Rail Safety Week as an opportunity to remind your network of colleagues, family and friends of the importance of being safe around rail property. To assist you in engaging your network in a meaningful dialogue, here is a link to our Rail Safety Week web page as well as to Operation Lifesaver. Also attached are our Rail Safety Tips and poster you can share within your communities. We are counting on you to help spread the word since rail safety is a shared responsibility: Be Rail Smart! Stop. Look. Listen. Live. #railsafety.
Finally, I would very much appreciate if you would share your experience, activities and any feedback on rail safety with me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At CN, we are very proud of and grateful for your continued commitment to Rail Safety and for your care for everyone's safety in your community.
I thank you very much for contributing to stronger and safer communities and making them proud to have CN as a neighbour.
Chief Security Officer and Chief of Police
