    Top tips for railway station safety


    Every weekday, thousands of people head to their local railway station to take a train to work. For some, the journey is a relatively short one. For others, it means a trip into the nearest city, which may be an hour or two away. Whatever the case may be, most people will make sure they are well aware of railway station safety whenever they use it, to ensure they aren’t injured.

    Railways are potentially dangerous, as most people will know. Tracks can be live, and trains can go past platforms at high speed if they do not stop. There are numerous other potential hazards around too, which makes it all the more important for us all to obey the safety rules and regulations in force.

    What are the potential dangers?

    Don’t stand too close to the edge of the platform, for starters. Accidents may happen if you stand right by the edge and bend down to pick up your luggage as the train comes in. People have suffered serious head injuries when hit by the train in such instances.

    Additionally, you should take extra care on crowded platforms. Try and move away from the entrances to the platforms if you can, and walk down to a less crowded area. Another aspect of railway station safety involves taking your time to move around. People are often in a hurry to get to their destination, and this can easily lead to potential accidents. People can trip or slip, and even knock into others, hurting other people in the process.

    How seriously might you be injured?

    Needless to say, the potential is there for serious and life-changing injuries to take place. Similarly, a simple slip, trip or fall could result in small injuries that might still affect you for a short time.
