The Voice of the Railroad Construction Industry

Safety Awards

The NRC 2017 Safety Awards process will begin in October of 2017. 


The NRC is pleased to announce the 2016 Safety Award winners. These outstanding awardees were recognized at the 2017 NRC Conference in Boca Raton, Florida. 

Each of these companies should be commended for their extensive efforts to promote and improve safety in the rail contracting industry, and for subjecting their full safety program and range of practices to an exhaustive outside review. These companies represent the very best of the NRC and the entire railroad construction and maintenance industry.
More than half of all the 2016 NRC Safety Award contestants had perfect scores! This reflects very well on the participating contractors, and speaks to the fact that the railroad contracting industry is safe and getting safer.
