Trespass Bowtie

We have helped the rail industry work together to construct a “bow tie”, as a way of illustrating the relationship between risk controls and the hazards they intend to prevent.

Every year, members of the public intentionally trespass on the railway, putting themselves and others in harm’s way.  This not only endangers the person trespassing, but also has an impact on train drivers and other rail staff.  The rail industry wants to reduce the risk, through public engagement and by sharing research, case studies and current practice.
