On Wednesday 13 July 2016 we hosted a webinar to present the key findings from the report.  You can watch the whole of the webinar again below.

 

The Annual Safety Performance Report forms part of the robust evidence base that the industry uses to develop and drive targeted safety improvements.

The latest report shows that in 2015/16 the rail industry maintained a positive track record in safety performance, thanks to a dedicated rail workforce and sustained efforts by everyone to tackle issues in a coordinated way.

For a record ninth year in a row there have been no passenger or workforce fatalities in train accidents on the British railway, the longest sustained period on record. 

Although rail remains one of the safest forms of transport, no one in the rail industry is complacent about safety and the report highlights the areas where harm was recorded and where risk needs to be managed.  In many cases these areas are covered with existing industry programmes of work and are referred to in Leading Health and Safety on Britain's Railway.
