Questions have been raised in State Parliament about Queensland Rail's safety credentials after a fatal accident west of Mackay in December last year.
The Opposition transport spokesman, Tim Nicholls, questioned the Government over safety training and certification provided to two men who were killed while working on the line at Mindi.
Transport Minister John Mickell told Parliament, safety is the highest priority and he is confident in the rail service provider.
"Any employee who shows up for work has a fair expectation they will return home from work safe and sound. So I have spoken with the CEO [chief executive officer] of Queensland Rail and have emphasised with him continuously, of the need to maintain the highest standard of safety for all people who work in Queensland Rail," he said.
