Norfolk Southern joins FRA Close Call Reporting System

Norfolk Southern Corporation announced that it is joining the Federal Railroad Administration’s Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS). Norfolk Southern was already actively participating in the C3RS Working Group that is part of the Department of Transportation’s Railroad Safety Advisory Committee. By joining the program, the company is building upon its own long-standing Close Call Experience Program.

Norfolk Southern has its own Close Call Experience Program that encourages employees to report instances they consider to be close calls confidentially through an online portal. The company’s Safety and Environmental Department, along with local safety committees, review the reports to capture teachable moments, which are then shared with employees to improve safety and encourage additional reporting.
