Our safety stats speak for themselves — and speak well of CN
There’s safety in numbers. Especially in our numbers. All 3 safety metrics improved markedly in 2012, finishing the year on a strong note. This represents a significant accomplishment, particularly coupled with a 6.9% increase in GTM’s. But there are still areas of opportunity for improvement.
Each region/function must continue to focus on the consistent application of their safety management plan to address safety issues comprehensively. Critical components of CN’s safety management plan include employee involvement, risk assessment, efficiency testing and preventive actions aimed at accident/incident root causes. Continued focus on safety culture, through initiatives such as SaFE programs, Peer-to-peer communication, safety summits and thorough cause-finding investigations, will continue to drive positive results in the reduction of accidents and injuries.
