ATSB supports Rail Safety Week

Rail Safety Week 12-18 August 2013

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is supporting Rail Safety Week, which is being held from 12 to 18 August 2013. In its eighth year, Rail Safety Week is an initiative of the Australasian Rail Industry and aims to raise awareness of safety issues around railway lines.

During the week, the ATSB will highlight the ongoing concerns of safe work on rail. We’ve investigated several accidents that have occurred when maintenance work was being carried out on or near railway tracks. Through our SafetyWatch initiative, we urge industry to give heightened attention to the risks and hazards facing rail workers. 

A new video can be found on the ATSB’s YouTube channel (ATSBinfo) highlighting rail worker safety.
