Welcome To eShortline

eShortLine is the contractor screening and workplace security management program specifically tailored for short line railroads by the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association’s preferred provider, eVerifile.

With the program, short line railroads can manage drug testing requirements, monitor and maintain a history of all contractor employees that have access to their property, conduct criminal background checks, complete safety awareness testing, and issue ID badges – thereby improving the security of railroad employees, operations and facilities.

3 Easy Steps to Become eShortLine Certified

Safety Awareness & Testing
