PRESIDENT'S SAFETY AWARD

Safety is critically important to the short line and regional railroad industry and ASLRRA’s Annual Safety Awards Program recognizes the contributions and achievements of short line railroads by awarding President’s Safety Awards.  In an effort to recognize and bring greater visibility to our safest railroads, ASLRRA’s President's Awards are now being presented regionally at the fall meetings.

ASLRRA's prestigious President’s Safety Awards recognize the outstanding safety records of railroads that have achieved either a 0.0 accident frequency rate, or the best safety rate as measured by the lowest accident frequency rate per man-hour of operation below the industry average.  The President’s Safety Award winners in each region are selected based on the previous year’s performance, according to FRA accident / incident reporting data.  This year’s award winners were determined based on 2018 FRA data.
