Health & Safety in the Rail Industry
According to reports published by the Rail Delivery Group, growth in passenger numbers and freight volumes are expected to continue for the foreseeable future. With demand on our railways at an all-time high, huge investment programmes are being implemented across the UK, meaning that tens of thousands of the UK’s rail workforce could be at risk of sustaining injury.
We recognise that contractors offering railway infrastructure services to the UK’s public and private sectors, including main line rail networks, branch line networks and underground rail networks, have thousands of highly skilled men and women that require protecting whilst carrying out their work. Railway Safety Solutions are pleased to offer a range of safety systems, including Platform Edge Protection, to help keep them safe.
Serious Accidents are far too Common
Due to the nature of the work, which can include working beside tracks and on railway platforms, and despite increased health and safety measures, accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence.
National statistics published in September 2020 by the Office of Rail & Road (ORR), reported that there were 130 major injuries sustained by the rail workforce during the period 2019/2020, with 53 being caused by slips, trips and falls, 7 due to platform edge accidents and 5 due to manual handling and awkward body movement accidents. The statistics also show that the UK rail workforce sustained a further 5099 minor injuries as result of accidents at work.
To help protect the rail industry from loss of productivity and the workforce from injury, we have designed a range of safety solutions, which include:

Why Choose Our Platform Edge Protection?
We have many years’ experience in working within the rail industry and have personal experience of working around poor safety systems, which is why we decided to develop a safety barrier system that reduces and almost eliminates the people/plant interface and fall prevention risk when carrying our maintenance on railway station platforms.
Some of the benefits of using our Platform Edge Protection include:
Reduced people/plant interface
Reduced risk of falling from platform edges and sustaining serious injury
Peace of mind that our Platform Edge Protection conforms to BS EN, meaning it’s of the highest possible quality
Less manual handling exposure to your workforce as our poles are stronger and lighter than other products on the market
Increased productivity and our posts have 2.5m centres, which means less poles to put up
