Rail Safety FAQs

Rail safety is of the utmost importance, with millions of people taking the train in the UK.

Trains are an incredibly efficient way to travel, but they do present lots of dangers to the public and staff if rules aren’t followed. Promoting rail safety should be the highest priority for everyone involved in the industry to ensure no avoidable accidents happen. It’s vital that safety procedures are in place and all rail compliance is followed to reduce the chances of any incidents.

Health and safety is a crucial part of the rail industry. Here are some tips to stay safe whether you are a passenger or working on a railway:

    • Stand back from the edge of the platform. Always stay behind the yellow lines. Stations should make sure these yellow lines are clearly visible.

    • Stay off the tracks. Never walk over train tracks, even if you can’t see a train approaching. The general public should only cross at official rail crossings when it is safe to do so.

    • People working on railways should always look both ways when crossing tracks.

    • Don’t try to cross tracks when a train is approaching, even if you think you can beat it. They are moving faster than you think!

    • Never stop on railway lines, always leave plenty of room behind the car in front of you, and don’t drive onto the crossing until you are certain you can drive right across.

    • If you break down on a railway crossing and your car will not start immediately, everyone should leave the car right away. You could try to push it off the tracks if there is time to do so safely, otherwise you should get at least 50 metres clear of the crossing. You should then inform the signalman using the track side emergency phone. If you can’t see one, call emergency services.

    • It’s illegal to drive around barriers when they are down and is extremely dangerous.

    • See something? Say something. You should always report anything suspicious on a train or railway tracks, whether it’s behaviour/activities or packages.

    • When with small children at a train station or rail crossing, you should hold hands.
