Rail Safety Week aims to improve education and awareness surrounding the correct way to behave at level crossings and around railway lines. It is vital to obey the warning signs and signals at all times, and accessing railway property is not only dangerous but illegal and punishable by law.
Rail Safety Week aims to improve education and awareness around how to behave safely around railway lines and level crossings. If people go to take a risk around railway lines, they fail to realise that trains simply cannot stop quickly and that they are in fact risking their lives.
During Rail Safety Week operators come together to promote safety messages around level crossing and track safety. Train passengers are responsible for knowing how they should and should not behave on trains, around railway lines, at stations, and on rail property.
STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, THINK.
