This is a Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) sponsored voluntary confidential program allowing railroad carriers and their employees to report close calls. The program provides a safe environment for employees to report unsafe events and conditions. Employees receive protection from discipline and FRA enforcement. Railroads also receive protection from FRA enforcement for events reported within C3RS. The original demonstration project ends in 2014. The FRA is currently accepting new sites. Find out more.
