Union Pacific Sees Record Low Injury Rate for 2012

Posted: Updated:

Union Pacific Railroad saw its lowest number of reported injuries in 2012.

Employees of the railroad company achieved a 1.01 reportable injury rate, down from 2011's record-breaking rate of 1.15.

A reportable injury rate is the total number of injuries reportable to the Federal Railroad Administration per 200,000 worker hours.

The company saw a 58 percent improvement to their reportable injury rate between 2002 and 2012.

"Our injury-rate improvement is evidence of our employees' personal commitment to actively caring for their fellow employees, practicing behaviors such as peer-to-peer observation and feedback," said Bob Grimaila, Union Pacific vice president of Safety, Security and Environment.
