Norfolk Southern Advances Key Safety and Service Objectives

In a recent letter to Transportation Secretary Buttigieg, Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Administrator Amit Bose and Surface Transportation Board Chairman Martin J. Oberman, Norfolk Southern outlined their progress on key safety and service initiatives.

“We are pleased that the implementation of our balanced strategy focused on service, productivity, and growth, with safety at its core, is taking shape,” said Norfolk Southern President and CEO Alan Shaw. “We are building a resilient railroad with a safe, compelling service product that has benefited not only the customers and supply chains that rely on our service, but also the communities we serve.”

Through the implementation of a Six-Point Action Plan, Norfolk Southern has made significant strides in advancing its safety measures, including the installation of 50 additional hot bearing detector systems so far in 2024 and the implementation of acoustic bearing detector systems.

Additionally, Norfolk Southern was the first Class I railroad to join the FRA’s Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS) pilot program, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at further improving safety across its network.
