The rail transportation workplace is a complex environment involving employees who are mostly self-supervised. In light of the complexity of this environment and our desire to create a safer workplace, we have agreed that our safety culture must be focused on safe production. One of the hallmarks of our safety culture is active participation by our employees, our managers, and the union leadership. Our commitment to partnership in promoting safety, our mutual objective is to identify and eliminate potential risks, (physical plant risks, behavioral risks, and attitudinal risks) and create a safer workplace through a process of continuous improvement.
The Site Safety Team consists of employees who unselfishly devote time and effort to the prevention of injuries and eliminating hazards. Through the division Safety Committee, employees play an important part of making BNSF a safe railroad by identifying where improvement should be made.
