Life Critical Rules
Among the safety rules we observe at CN are ones that, if not followed to the letter, can lead to serious injury or even death. These are called Life Critical Rules, and your life, your co-workers’ lives and the safety of the communities we serve depend on them.

Our Commitment to Life Critical Rules
Each and every one of us is committed to an incident- and injury-free workplace and it is our number one priority to train our workforce on Life Critical Rules so we all go home safely, every single day. At CN, there are nine groups where Life Critical Rules apply. You can find the groups and rules below.
