<p>On Sunday April 28, at 11 a.m. local time, Canadian Pacific (TSX:CP)(NYSE:CP) employees will join others around the world to commemorate the men and women who have been injured or have lost their lives in the workplace on this global day of recognition.</p>
<p>“The safety and security of our employees and the communities where we operate have always been priorities for CP,” said Keith Creel, Canadian Pacific’s President and Chief Operating Officer. </p>
<p>Across the railway’s North American network that spans across 6 provinces and 13 states, all CP employees will observe one minute of silence at 11 a.m. local time which will be followed by the sounding of train whistles in a united honourary salute of remembrance. </p>
<p>“Safety is everyone’s responsibility and this day serves as an important reminder that employees can make a difference in workplace safety by working together, following the rules and looking out for one another,” added Mr. Creel. <br><br></p>
<p>This day also coincides with the start of Public Rail Safety Week in Canada. The Canadian Pacific Police Service (CPPS) will be taking their message of “Stay Alert, Stay Alive” to communities across the CP network between April 29 and May 5. The emphasis of this year’s program is on educating adults and children on the importance of safety around railroad property through police enforcement activities and school presentations.</p>
