them immediate insight into their
management team's performance for
safety inputs. For instance, we can
identify employees who may not have
had an interaction with a manager
for quite some time. It gives us a very
strong view and correlation between
safety inputs and safety outputs, and
it also allows us to be more nimble
and agile in monitoring our activities
when our outputs are not at target.
It also provides the opportunity to
understand which areas are operating
well and providing recognition."
Initiatives like CP's have led to
significantly lower accident rates
across Canada's railway industry.
During the last 10 years alone,
Canada's freight rail accident rate has
fallen by close to 40 per cent, to less
than 1.5 accidents per billion gross
tonne-kilometres. Robust investments
have made these types of resources
possible. Since 1999, Canada's railway
industry has invested more than
$24 billion since 1999 to ensure the
safety of its infrastructure - including
innovative safety technologies.

Like CP, CN prioritizes investments
that improve safety. CN is currently in
the fourth year of its Safety Innovation
Program, which leverages new
technology to support its broader
safety management system.
"The application of new
technologies allows CN to provide
a safer and more reliable network,
and that is a key part of our safety
program," says Kevin Day, assistant
chief engineer of technology, testing
and standards.
CN's annual capital program
will once again include dedicated
investments in safety technology like
wayside inspection systems and track
testing vehicles. As part of its program,
CN is also investing in predictive
analytics and data management
initiatives to assess the state of the
infrastructure, so that it can prioritize
routine maintenance more efficiently
and proactively identify potential
problem areas.
"Over the past two years, we've
developed a tool called Engineering
Reliability Analytics (ERA) that
