The safety of employees and customers is a top priority for CSX. We partner effectively with customers to ensure we take necessary precautions to address seasonal railroad hazards that may affect employees, rail traffic and infrastructure. The video provided below is designed to help keep CSX employees and those who work for our customers safe, as well as to help keep customers’ rail served facilities operational in adverse weather conditions.
