Improving Risk Assessment at the Platform Train Interface

Our Platform Train Interface Risk Assessment Tool can be used to assess the effectiveness of safety arrangements, prioritise areas for improvement and develop action plans.

The PTI Risk Assessment Tool comprises a web based central database supported by a mobile app that can be used on station platforms. It can only be used by Station Managers of mainline GB rail stations and is available to RSSB members only. Use of the tool makes it easy to share knowledge across the mainline railway.  By adopting common mitigations, stations can save money and give passengers a more consistent and satisfying experience.

Members who have registered with RSSB to access the PTI Risk Assessment Tool, have access to the app, guidance and a demonstration video on how to use the tool. The App is available to download from the Apple Store or Google® Play.  If you have not yet made use of the tool and need some assistance, please contact Kevin Thompson (
