Rail Safety and Standards Board ReportShare
The Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) issued a report in July, about Risk associated with train dispatch.
The report uses 6 years’ worth of accident and incident data from around the country and explores Personal accidents to passengers and members of the public associated with train dispatch including:
- Any injury to passengers or public while they are boarding or alighting a train.
- Incidents of passengers or public coming into contact with a train while on the vplatform, or falling between a stationary or departing train and the platform.
The report found that trains without guards were as safe, if not safer than those with guards.
