Norfolk Southern, a major freight railroad, has been criticized by federal regulators for its inadequate Safety culture and failure to meet minimum safety requirements. The Federal Railroad Administration released a report highlighting poor communication, mistrust between employees and managers, and inadequate training. The agency has called for Major Freight Railroads to prioritize safety and plans to conduct similar safety culture reviews at other companies. Norfolk Southern is collaborating with workers to address the report's findings, but proposed legislation to improve rail safety has stalled in Congress. The railroad's safety record has been questioned, with the rate of accidents increasing faster than other major freight railroads.
