New rules respecting minimum qualification standards for railway employees
Source: The Railway Association of Canada
Published: June 29th 2009
The Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities has recently approved the new Employee Qualification Rule. The new rule applies to any occupational category and any railway position directly engaged in the movement or control of equipment in yard service or on main track.

It also applies to railway employees authorized to operate cranes or other machines moving equipment. This rule will eventually replace the Railway Employee Qualification Standard Regulations, CTC 1987-3 (SOR/87-150) once it has been repealed. The official name of the new rule will be Rules Respecting Minimum Qualification Standards for Railway Employees.
