Government Of Saskatchewan Recognizes Rail Safety Week 2020

Released on September 24, 2020

September 21-27 marks National Rail Safety Week 2020

The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure and the Canadian Safety Train Express want everyone to stay safe around trains.

“In Saskatchewan we rely on trains to ensure our goods get where they need to go,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.  “Making sure they get there efficiently is one thing, but what matters more is that it happens safely.”

“This is a year unlike any other,” Canadian Safety Train Express CEO Perry Pellerin said.  “As COVID-19 continues to affect our daily lives and prevents us from hosting in-person classes, it’s crucial that we develop new ways to teach the public about railway safety and awareness.  In conjunction with National Rail Safety Week, Canadian Safety Train Express is excited to unveil a new augmented-reality feature in its railway safety program and release three contests for students to participate in to win prizes or a $1,000 scholarship.  The contests will run until December 1, 2020.”

English and French activity books have also been distributed to more than 3,500 students in Saskatchewan.  Electronic copies are available online for those who are remote learning.

Saskatchewan has 13 operational, privately-owned shortline railways.  These operate on more than 2,000 kilometres of track and connect to more than 6,000 kilometres of federally-regulated track.

If you have questions or concerns regarding railway safety, signage, work zones and more, reach out to the Highway Customer Service Centre.  You can call 1-844-SK-HIWAY, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or visit us online anytime.
