Inter Pipeline has a 1,600-car, state-of-the-art rail fleet that moves our Heartland Polymers polypropylene product from our Heartland Petrochemical Complex (HPC) out to customers across North America. With HPC entering full service this fall, residents of the Alberta Industrial Heartland area may see a slight increase in rail traffic. To us, rail safety is of the utmost importance to ensure our employees, our neighbours, our families and community members remain safe, each and every day as we operate.
Remember, there are no small incidents when it comes to rail. Whether you’re near a work site or just interacting with a rail line in your personal life, this Rail Safety Week, we remind everyone the importance of staying safe around rail lines.
Watch our video below for rail safety reminders to ensure everyone goes home safe.
