Share Your Organisations Approach to Reducing Trespass
Trespass on the rail network is at an all-time high, according to figures published by Network Rail. In 2018/19, 13,500 known trespass events caused more than 20 fatalities and affected hundreds of thousands of passengers, delaying 160,000 trains.
Three new research projects, developed in collaboration with the Trespass Risk Group, the National Trespass Improvement Programme and organisations including DB Cargo and Network Rail, aim to:
- develop a common good practiceapproach to assessing trespassrisk (T1183)
- understand the motivations for trespass and, from this, recommend effective prevention and mitigation measures (T1168)
- identify the most valuable trespass data to collect (T1182)
To share your organisation’s approach to trespass risk assessment, or your experiences of prevention and mitigation measures, please get in touch with Ann Mills, Head of Health and Safety Management.
