While London tube platforms are safer now than they have ever been, passengers should never assume that accidents on the tube are a thing of the past altogether.
Occasionally, tube accidents do happen, and it helps to be aware of the dangers of a crowded London tube platform, and other possible risks, in order to prevent personal injuries.
Crowded London tube platforms can make it difficult to avoid slips, trips and falls, especially when weather conditions are poor and flooring becomes wet.
Carelessly deposited bags and packages may cause injuries by tripping and being pushed and generally jostled about on stairs or escalators leading to platforms could all too easily end in a fall from height.
Following platform rules, such as staying behind the yellow lines where advised to do so, heeding safety warnings, including ‘Mind the gap’, and keeping an eye on the ground to prevent slips and trips, all help to avoid accidental injuries.
Being considerate towards others and avoiding collisions with other passengers as much as possible is equally helpful in preventing platform accidents.
