July 22, 2021: Transport Canada Seeking Public Comments on Rail Safety Culture

Transport Canada is currently seeking public comments on how to improve the safety culture in the rail industry. The agency released a statement that read, in part, “Transport Canada is committed to taking the lead on developing a safety culture policy statement for the railway industry in response to a recommendation from the 2018 Railway Safety Act review, recognizing that safety culture improvements must be driven by railway companies with support by the department…The draft policy statement is intended to open a dialogue and to encourage continued collaboration between Transport Canada, railway companies, industry associations, labor organizations and academia, while helping to position Canada’s rail transportation system to meet the challenges of the next decade.”
