Rail safety management: a US perspective

In 2007, U.S. railroads achieved their safest year ever by the following major safety yardsticks: the Train Accident Rate was down 10% from 2006, collisions at level crossings were down 7% from 2006 and casualty rates for employees. Longer-term trends show this progress has been steady for almost 30 years; since 1980 the train accident rate, and level crossing collisions have dropped more than 70%.
