CN has announced the winners of its 2023 Safe Handling Award. This accolade is granted to customers who load freight cars with dangerous goods and adhere to stringent standards for the safe handling and shipment of regulated products. The recipients are selected based on established criteria related to the total number of shipments of dangerous goods across all their facilities.

The Safe Handling Award aligns with CN’s overarching goal to become the safest railway in North America.

“I want to congratulate the 2023 winners for upholding the highest standards in their handling of dangerous goods for their safe transportation across CN’s network. But more importantly, I want to thank them: safety is our shared value, and it really is the most important thing we do. CN is proud to highlight and to celebrate 193 shippers for their achievements and commitment to safety,” said Remi Lalonde, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer at CN.

Buck Rogers, vice-president of Petroleum & Chemicals at CN, added, “We take great pride in acknowledging our customers for their dedication to maintaining a safe operation. At CN, safety is not just a priority, but also our fundamental principle, shared mutually with our customers. It’s our collective responsibility to actively ensure a secure workplace for our employees and communities alike.”

The Safe Handling Award is an essential component of the Responsible Care® Program, a continuous performance improvement initiative in which CN is a partner, both in Canada and the U.S.
