RED Programmes

RED conveys safety messages about the operational railway, emphasising the key learning points with a dramatisation. They are used in safety briefings and training sessions across industry.  By popular demand, we are making them available to all railway staff online.

Past issues of RED have included road driving risk, fatigue, safety critical communications and platform train interface. All past issues of RED will be made available online in the near future. You can see a full list of the topics covered here. A warning that some of the programmes contain strong language, and scenes that viewers may find upsetting.
