Industrial Railway Safety Conference

OCTOBER 23, 2019


Continuing on the mission to create a broader understanding and appreciation of the role that industrial railways play in the North American railway system and to shed light on resources and systems for safe operations.

Join the fifth annual event that has become Canada's #1 Industrial Railway forum for industrial and short line operators, Class 1 operators, regulators, shippers, suppliers, safety training experts, academics and economic development representatives.

Railway safety is a top priority as goods movement by rail continues to be the backbone of the North American economy. Learn about the most current and best practices in the sector, interact with experts on the regulatory process and safety management systems, gain insight into new technologies and equipment, and find out about safety training resources. Together we can make a difference in improving rail safety across North America.

If you have any questions please contact Sarah Whittaker, Event Director at 780.263.0886 or email registration@industrialrailwayconference.com.


ONE-OF-A-KIND FORUM IN CANADA!The importance of safety and productivity in today's industrial railways has never been greater

The increase in volume on our railways, tighter controls and regulation from provincial and federal sources, the demands to perform to standards with existing resources all add up to higher expectations on your company.

The Industrial Railway Safety Conference is here to help you understand how to meet the challenges you face and ensure the right conditions for a thriving and efficient operation.
