Business Ethics and Compliance
RailWorks is committed to the highest standards of business ethics and compliance with all applicable federal, state/provincial and local laws and regulations governing our business across the United States and Canada. Our standards for fair and ethical behavior and operating principles are defined and guided by our Core Values, Standards of Conduct and Compliance Program.
RailWorks’ Core Values are Customer Focus, Employee Focus, Industry Leadership and Integrity. They guide our business and our relationships with our customers, suppliers, partners and each other.
Standards of Conduct
Our Standards of Conduct define and govern our ethical responsibilities and standards of behavior. They apply to all RailWorks employees and to members of our board of directors, agents, consultants, contract labor, and others when they are representing or acting for, or on behalf of RailWorks. We expect our partners, subcontractors, and suppliers to be guided by these principles as well.
RailWorks’ Compliance Program is a formal, internal control system to ensure that we comply with our Core Values, Standards of Conduct, and with all applicable federal, state/provincial and local laws and regulations. Through periodic reviews of our business practices, policies and procedures, internal audits and regular compliance training, the program is designed to prevent, detect and correct improper conduct and to ensure prompt resolution of compliance issues.
A key component of our Compliance Program is the RailWorks ALERTLINE at 1-888-673- 1152. This is a confidential, toll-free hotline, accessible in English, Spanish or French, to report any issues of concern about RailWorks and its business conduct that may be inconsistent with our Core Values and Standards of Conduct. RailWorks’ policies prohibit retaliation against any employee or person who makes a good-faith complaint or report to the Company via the ALERTLINE, or otherwise.
