Atlanta-based e-VERIFILE.COM Inc., announced that the U.S. operations of Canadian Pacific Railway has joined e-RAILSAFE, the company’s safety and security initiative that performs background screening, credentialing and tracking of railroad contractors and their employees.

The railroad will require all of its contractors and vendors and their employees who physically operate on U.S. properties to comply with the program. These service providers include those who have access to critical infrastructure, sensitive information, company employees or hazardous materials.

Canadian Pacific is the sixth major railroad and the second Canadian railroad to join the e-RAILSAFE program.

e-VERIFILE.COM Inc. developed the program in 2005 at the request of U.S. and Canadian Class I railroads to increase safety and security at railroad facilities. Class I railroads are freight railroads with the largest operating revenue.

e-VERIFILE.COM is also used for verifying the security of workforce, contractor and security management processes for various industries worldwide.
