Union Pacific Sets Employee Safety Record

Union Pacific's employees achieved a 0.92 reportable injury rate through the third quarter, improving 12 percent over the same period in 2014. A railroad's reportable injury rate is the total number of injuries reported to the Federal Railroad Administration per 200,000 employee hours, which is equivalent to 100 employees working a full year.

"While we continue to make significant improvement, we won't be satisfied until we reach our goal of zero incidents, ensuring every employee goes home safely at the end of each day," said Cameron Scott, executive vice president-Operations.

Employees continue to place an emphasis on demonstrating Courage to Care — a personal pledge to safety. Introduced in 2012, it represents a culture of safety and personal accountability and strengthens the degree to which each and every employee prioritizes safety as an issue.
