Trespass Risk Group

    Trespass is a key industry risk which still results in fatalities and serious injuries across the rail industry from stations to depots including infrastructure. Those affected are employees, contractors, Office of Rail and Road (ORR) and officers of the British Transport Police (BTP) and the wider public.

    Scope

    Risk to passengers and members of the public at all locations resulting from trespass carried out for all reasons other than suicide e.g

    • Theft (including burglary)
    • Criminal damage
    • Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)
    • Short cuts
    • Platform Issues (short notice changes, urinating etc)

    Message from the chair

    • identify and sponsor improvement opportunities including research and relevant products and services;
    • learn from and promote good practice;
    • facilitate cooperation;
    • respond to requests from SSRG and other cooperative forums; and
    • consider future developments that may impact its assigned risk profiles.
