Rail Safety Week 2022

Help CN to Spread the Rail Safety Message


This year, Rail Safety Week will be held in Canada, the United States and Mexico from September 19 - 25. 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. Join our CN Rail Safety Week team!


Railway safety is a shared responsibility Rail safety never takes a break. 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. We are pleased to share some of our online and social media 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 communities and community organizations in which you are involved.


We 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 web page as well as to Operation Lifesaver.  Also attached are our Rail Safety Tips 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, we would very much appreciate if you would share your experience, activities and any feedback on rail safety with us by email at 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.


We thank you very much for contributing to stronger and safer communities and making them proud to have CN as a neighbour.


Yours sincerely,
