Kansas City Southern's engineering department for its U.S. operations achieved a "record low injury frequency ratio," with plans to maintain the railroad's performance this year, according to KCS. "Fostering a culture of safety is something we often discuss as a group. We've embraced this and have made safety a part of our everyday life," said Jeff Songer, KCS vice president and chief engineer. "While we've made great progress over the past few years, the most encouraging thing to me is to know that we have the ability, desire and talent to become even better."
