Rail Safety Week

Every three hours, a person or vehicle in the United States is hit by a train. Helping keep our communities safe is incredibly important.

CSX, along with Operation Lifesaver, Inc. and other partner organizations, led safety awareness activities during this year's Rail Safety Week from September 23-29, 2018. The week featured a collaborative awareness campaign drawing participants from Class I railroads, the U.S. Department of Transportation, first responders and more. CSX's network-wide outreach included crossing safety blitzes, safety presentations for first responders and community members, college campus engagement, and more. There were also events that focused specifically on truck driver and commuter rail education. 


Rail Safety Resources

Below are the rail safety information cards we pass out during crossing blitzes, as well as infographis that are perfect for sharing to raise awareness about rail safety. Our partners at Operation Lifesaver have additional downloadable Rail Safety Week materials.
