As Rail Safety Week 2016 draws to a close there is still plenty of events going on across the country. Today we take a look at what Amey have been doing across their sites, in their offices and also within the community.
Milo Lloyd gave a safety presentation to years 5 and 6 in Bathampton Primary School near Bath yesterday. Milo commented:
“I was really happy I got to attend that school as they have a user-worked crossing the railway at the end of their lane and several trains blew their horns as I was presenting so it felt like the right audience. I am booked in for Oldfield Park infant school on the 18th October for years 5/6 and am hopeful to attend Swainswick in the near future too.”
Tuesday in conjunction with Fujitsu their was a full morning demonstrating driver fatigue monitoring equipment.
Across the week Amey sites throughout the UK held also held driver safety sessions.
Robert Doyle, HSEQ Director said:
“Amey Rail has been busy during Rail Safety Week. The team had a great session at Amey’s depot in Moreton, with Fujitsu UK, on Tuesday, who showcased their driver drowsiness and lone worker solutions. One of Amey’s senior Rail Engineers, Milo Lloyd was also at Bathampton Primary School yesterday giving a talk on Rail safety, which was developed in conjunction with the Network Rail Community Safety team. Amey also had a driver safety session with our team in Swindon. Today the team are looking forward to meeting with British Transport Police to talk about a new campaign around trespass on the railways”
