BUILDING SAFETY TOGETHER
ON A NATIONAL SCALE

Alan Tarrant
Rail Safety Founder

As safety is such a focal point within the rail industry I began to question and look at how we, as individuals could improve or have a positive impact by promoting safety in the UK.  My research led me overseas where I began to find that a number of countries hold very successful, annual Rail Safety Weeks. Where the whole industry and public come together across a dedicated week to promote the importance of rail safety through various different avenues.  Although the UK is clearly a leader in terms of rail safety standards this seemed like a great opportunity to bring our industry together to promote, share ideas and essentially bolster our safety infrastructure throughout the UK.  If we can change the way at least one person thinks or acts, then we have done what we have set out to achieve
