Rail Safety Tips


1 ● SPEED MISPERCEPTION


Because of their size, trains appear to be much farther away and travelling much slower than their actual speed. Don’t be fooled!


2 ● TRAINS CAN'T STOP QUICKLY


The average train needs at least 2 km to stop. Trains can stop, but they can’t stop quickly!


3 ● TRESPASSING 


Taking a shortcut across the tracks or being on railway property is illegal, and trespassers can be seriously injured or killed.


4 ● WEIGHT RATIO


An average freight train weighs over 5,500 tonnes. Compare that to a car, which weighs about 1.5 tonnes. A train hitting a car is like a car hitting a pop can.


5 ● RAILWAY CARS


Stopped railway cars can move at any time. If you’re on one or near one when it moves, you could lose a limb—or worse, your life.


6 ● TUNNELS AND BRIDGES


Tunnels, bridges, and trestles are designed only for trains. Trespassers can be seriously injured or killed.

 

7 ● OVERHANG


Trains can carry loads that are wider than the railroad cars themselves. They can have chains, straps or other equipment that may extend outside the car. If you are standing too close, you could get hit.


8 ● ANY TIME IS TRAIN TIME


Trains do not always run on schedule. They can run at any time, on any track and come from either direction.


9 ● CN POLICE NUMBER


Together we can help save lives! If you witness any unsafe situation near a railroad, please call 1-800-465-9239.

Federal Statutory Holiday: National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

July 20, 2021 - Defence Stories

The Government of Canada is committed to reconciliation and ensuring that the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools is never forgotten.

As you may be aware, the government recently passed legislation to make September 30th a federal statutory holiday called the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Like all Canadians, this day provides an opportunity for each public servant to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools. This may present itself as a day of quiet reflection or participation in a community event.

Our current collective agreements include provisions to allow for an additional designated holiday if one is proclaimed by an act of Parliament. As a result, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation will become a designated paid holiday and will allow employees in the federal public service to observe and participate in this important day starting September 2021.

Please note: Employees do not have to take any action to request this leave (no system entry) – it is to be treated in the same manner as all other statutory holidays.

If you have any questions, please contact HR Connect RH (accessible only on the National Defence network) ;online or by calling 1-833-747-6363 (for DND employees only).
