Welcome To The New eRailSafe 2.0

eRailSafe is the Class 1 and ShortLine industry standard for contractor safety and security management for Railroads and the vendors that serve them.

eRailSafe enables Class I and ShortLine Railroads to monitor and maintain a history of all contractor employees that have access to their property. The purpose of the program is to improve the security of railroad employees, operations, and facilities.

3 Easy Steps to Become eRailSafe Certified

Criminal Background Checks

Vendor applicants are required to submit to background investigations.

Safety Awareness & Testing

Vendor applicants must complete required safety and security awareness tests for their assigned railroads.


Vendor applicants are required to wear eRailSafe ID Badges when working on railroad property. Badges are issued upon successful completion of background investigation and compliance testing.

All of the above components must be completed within 90 days of enrollment. If an applicant has not completed training, testing, or had a photo uploaded within 90 days the applicant status will update to program cancelled. The applicant will need to be re-enrolled into all selected programs, completion of training and testing will be required and the program fee will be charged again.

Please follow your assigned railroads guidelines when completing the testing and training within a specific time frame (time frames may vary by railroad).

To help close security gaps, several Class I railroads teamed with eVerifile, a background investigation firm, to create an industry-wide security and safety initiative known as eRailSafe. The eRailSafe program is designed to facilitate background screening and credentialing of Class I freight railroad contractors and contractors’ employees.

New York State Pass Thru Fees Update

For certain counties in New York, there is no longer a county seat available; all information is forwarded to the state level. A New York statewide search is $95.00. The New York statewide search is required if any address found during the SSN Trace is located in New York. We have previously passed this fee to our customers, however, in our new system, the functionality was not available until now. Effective immediately, we will once again start passing through this fee when applicable.
