The future of rail safety
24 February 22

Everyone has the right to go home safe.

The health and safety of both our workforce and passengers are paramount and it should be a priority in all of our project, development, and maintenance activities. Despite the fact that our railway is one of the safest in the world, there is still work to be done to protect the safety of everyone. Using technology to its full extent can improve important, accurate, and potentially lifesaving communications.

RTM365 will bring together industry leaders on February 22nd to discuss how we can use changing safety technology, promote training and development, and create a safer railway for both our employees and passengers.
