RTM365: The Future of Rail Safety | Trackside Safety

Over the last century, the safety of track workers has increased dramatically. However, there have been a number of fatalities and close misses in the last three years.

Working on open lines, fatigue, and human-operated or dependent warning systems that rely on the ability and alertness of the track workers utilising them are the main risks that trackside employees face. Everyone who works on the railway deserves to be kept safe while on the job.

This means that everyone has a responsibility to act safely and report any potential hazards.

On 24th February 22, RTM365 virtual events united leaders in railway safety to discuss what the future holds and how we ensure that the railways are a safe environment for our workforce and passengers alike.

One key focus of the day was trackside safety, event host Helen Fospeo, was joined by Keith Morey, Health & Safety Manager - CDM Lead, Network Rail, Nick Millington, Director, Safety Task Force, Network Rail, Anne Dronet, Railways & Channel Sales Manager, Castell & Serv Trayvou, James Nattrass, Director of Incident Management and Operational Security, Network Rail and Marian Kelly, Head Of SHE, Transport For London for an engaging panel discussion followed by a keynote from Ian Prosser CBE, Director, Railway Safety at the ORR.
