Track Worker Safety Data Insights
Recent incidents at Margam, Stoats Nest, and subsequently to this project Roade, have sharpened the industry’s focus on track workers, and in particular their exposure to moving trains. Supporting Network Rail’s Track Worker Safety Task Force, RSSB’s data insights team has investigated track worker safety, to identify key safety insights or observations that can be taken from the data.
RSSB collaborated with Network Rail to support their Track Worker Safety Task Force and the Near Miss Reduction Programme in investigating track workers exposure to moving trains. The analysis made use of the data available to RSSB from the Safety Management Intelligence System (SMIS), Close call and Network Rail’s investigation reports.
