Railway Association of Canada award
The Railway Association of Canada honoured VIA Rail with a prize for excellence in safety for a pilot project related to the handling of workplace accidents involving service attendants. The project aims to reduce the interval between employee accidents in the workplace and their subsequent return to work. By collecting precise information about such accidents, VIA Rail has improved the quality of health and safety investigations, mobilized its staff and increased safety in its workplace.
