Railway Safety Officer

The Railway Safety Officer is a provincial peace officer appointed under the Provincial Railways Act. The Safety Officer is the primary contact for the shortline railways and ensures day-to-day compliance with safety, regulatory and operating requirements.

TheĀ  Safety Officer might meet with the shortline rail operators review safety trends and discuss common issues. These meetings are also a good opportunity for the railways to voice any concerns they may have and to speak with experts from Transport Canada and other agencies.

For more information, contact the Railway Safety Officer by email or by calling 204-945-3890.
