Driving Safety

Although Network Rail own and run Britain’s rail infrastructure, in order to operate, maintain and upgrade the infrastructure the industry has to undertake a lot of driving.

Road risk is a one of the highest risks all our workers face, and our road driving activities impacts on the widest range of those working in the rail industry from employees, contractors, suppliers, as well as how our driving performance affect members of the public.
