CSX announced that it is joining the Federal Railroad Administration’s Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3Rs), as part of its commitment to working together to keep its employees and communities safe.
The FRA’s Confidential Close Call Reporting System will supplement CSX’s already robust employee safety reporting programs. The company has multiple initiatives in place through which employees can anonymously report safety concerns or potentially unsafe conditions, without fear of reprisal. The programs offer various options for submitting information to make it convenient for employees – including email, voicemail and webforms.
CSX acts promptly to address the information submitted through its existing employee safety reporting programs. Changes are made where applicable, and details of incidents that could have resulted in life-changing events are often leveraged by the company to implement modifications to training or the work environment.
