Making it Easier to Assess Risk at the Platform Edge

Accidents on station platforms have accounted for over 50 fatalities since 2003 and account for the highest proportion of passenger injuries. However, most of these incidents occur when there is no train at the platform. How are we working to make platforms safer?

​We have updated our risk assessment tool, which collects information about and platform-based safety incidents across the network and provides the industry with a consistent method of analysing risks. This means station and safety managers are better able to understand the causes of incidents and prioritise improvements. 

RSSB’s Platform Train Interface (PTI) Risk Assessment Tool is a web-based and mobile application available to download in Google Play and the App Store. The tool allows users to complete assessments on the platform in real time and synchronise information over Wi-Fi.
