Railway safety


At American Track, safety is our priority. Our employees are committed to their own and each other’s safety, ensuring everyone can go home to their families at the end of the day. As an employer, one of our primary goals is to provide a safe and positive work environment for our employees to work in.

We encourage our employees to promote the safety-first mentality.Our employees know they have the authority to stop work at any time to address unsafe conditions or to gain clarity on the safe work plan. When everyone is involved, American Track will be a safer place to work because safety is the first thing on everyone’s mind. American Track has developed various safety programs to ensure we are continually growing our safety culture.

The HSE department has developed numerous safety campaigns and programs on a variety of topics including Keep Safety on TRACK, NARS 10 Safety Laws, among others. We also encourage participation in the Safety Share Program. Our Executives, Managers, and Supervisors lead by example working with crews to make sure all safety precautions are taken, no matter the situation or environment.

Training and education are provided to all levels of employees, in the office and in the field. We invest in many types of training, from our LMS system, MSHA, OSHA, FRA Track Safety Standards/Roadway Worker Protection training, CPR/First Aid, Workplace safety, Class I and industry specific training, as well as hands-on and online defensive driver training. 

We hold weekly “Toolbox Meetings” as well as Daily Job Safety Briefings that cover site-specific conditions, hazards, and emergency response plans. If a client requires specific on-site training, this is done prior to the start of the job.

Our cutting-edge driver safety technology trains drivers to think about their driving habits and to learn best practices in defensive driving. Drivers go through online fleet training before getting on the road and monthly after that. In a multi-faceted training program, including a driving simulator, defensive driving eLearning courses, and in-house road exams, we are positioned to ensure the highest level of driver safety. Beyond training, all American Track vehicles are equipped with telematics to help detect speeding, aggressive driving, and distracted driving behaviors.

We are members of various third-party vendor systems that track qualifications and safety standards. Membership with these systems allows us to work in many facilities with elevated safety standards. A few vendors we have relationships with are DISA, ISNetworld and Avetta.
