was higher than the previous year
(two) and the five-year average (one).
Annual safety data, and statistics
for any other month of the year, tell
the same story. According to TSB
data from the last 10 years, 91 per
cent of fatalities and 85 per cent of
serious injuries occurred either at a
crossing or as a result of trespassing
on railway property.
This issue of Interchange is
dedicated to rail safety, specifically
as it relates to innovation, technology

and enforcement. The articles cover
how the industry is harnessing data
and information technology to improve
safety, the role of railway police
forces in Canada and much more. For
Canada's railways, nothing is more
important than safety. When it comes
to crossings and trespassing, we have
a responsibility to do everything that
we can to ensure that our operations
are safe, that people understand
the dangers of railway operations,
and that we work with governments,

When it comes to crossings
and trespassing, we have a
responsibility to do everything
that we can to ensure that
our operations are safe,
that people understand the
dangers of railway operations,
and that we work with
governments, communities
and stakeholders to foster
safe behaviour.

communities and stakeholders to
foster safe behaviour.
Canada's railway industry is
focused on three areas that offer
the most impactful public-rail
safety benefits. First, we believe in
education and outreach. That is why
we partnered with Transport Canada
to create Operation Lifesaver (OL)
more than 35 years ago to teach
Canadians about rail crossing safety,
and to raise awareness about the
dangers of trespassing on railway
property. This year, OL launched
a new, innovative virtual reality
campaign to communicate important
safety messages to school children
