Safety, Health & the Environment

We’re protecting our employees, contractors, passengers and planet. That’s just the RailWorks way.

Smarter, Safer Standards

As North America’s leading rail contractor, we have a responsibility to provide the best work we can,. That’s not just a question of budgets and timeframes. Being the best also demands a commitment to practices that protect the well-being of our employees, contractors, passengers and the natural world.

Everyone on our job sites can be assured we will provide sufficient resources, training, equipment and controls to foster a safe working environment, as well as seek opportunities to conserve and reuse resources and prevent pollution. Our employee handbook is required reading for every member of our team and details the many ways RailWorks is fostering these values.

At RailWorks, we see safety as our first responsibility, one that goes hand-in-hand with quality work and satisfied clients. It’s this commitment that has earned us top safety accolades, including the Gold Safety Award from the National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association, numerous customer awards, and a low EMR. We continuously train our teams around the U.S. and Canada on safe operations.

Today, our culture of safety continues to reduce injuries and incidents, while driving productivity and work quality – and not to mention happier employees.
