Personal Track Safety Program


With the increased number of construction activities happening on or around Metrolinx railways, more people than ever are exposed to the hazards and risks of working in a railway environment. All individuals working on our rail network must be trained on how to safely work and operate in this environment before they begin work.

Personal Track Safety (PTS) Program is required by:

  • Anyone working within the Metrolinx Right of Way (ROW)
  • Anyone working under a form of track protection on a Metrolinx site
  • Anyone working on a piece of Metrolinx owned rail infrastructure (e.g., bridges, tunnels, etc.)
