Notices and Orders

Railway Safety Inspectors have the power to order a person or company to take specific measures when an immediate threat to safety is found during inspections. This power is found under subsection 31(2) of the Railway Safety Act (RSA).

An immediate threat means that a situation exists and could reasonably cause injuries to a person, or damage could be caused to property or the environment.

A Notice and Order is used to communicate that an immediate threat was found and includes the order to take corrective measures. Once the immediate threat is removed to the inspector's satisfaction, the Notice and Order can be revoked.

Below is a list of Notice and Orders that have been issued since 2009:
