"Keep clear of the closing doors"
Our research provides an in-depth look at how passengers interact with train doors during boarding and alighting, and examines their understanding of door closure arrangements. How long the alarm sounds, when the doors close, and the speed at which they close, are all factors that can be optimised to reduce the risk of door closure injuries. Operators should also consider opportunities to educate passengers through signs on carriages, platform posters and audible announcements.
