CN is dedicated to providing the leadership, organization, training and resources necessary to help achieve its goal of being the safest Class I railroad in North America through a continual focus on:

A Strong Safety Culture

Where every employee is committed to their personal safety, to looking out for each other, and to safely operating through the communities we serve.

Safe Work Practices and Training

That ensure employees have the necessary tools and training to work safely.
