As the operator of the railway, we're responsible for keeping passengers and those who live or work near the railway safe. We take this responsibility very seriously, so we do all we can to raise awareness among the general public of how they can behave safely on our infrastructure.
We’re proud of our award-winning campaigns that has brought the rail industry together and with your support we can get everyone home safe every day.
Whilst many of our campaigns are run nationally, local promotion of key messages is vital to making these campaigns a success and driving positive railway safety behaviours. This page will act as the hub for safety campaign information, providing you with the tools and resources you need to raise awareness of railway safety in your area.
If you would like any further information on our safety campaigns please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This year's intoxication campaign twists common phrases for being drunk to show some of the possible consequences of drunken behaviour around the railway, with the aim to encourage people who are intoxicated to behave safely around the railway, and reduce alcohol-related incidents and injuries.

You vs Train
The rail industry and the British Transport Police have launched this campaign which aims to raise awareness about the dangers of trespassing.
You vs Train resources have been created to be to be used in schools to help communicate the importance of rail safety to pupils across the UK.
Small Talk Saves Lives
The rail industry is working in partnership with Samaritans and the British Transport Police on the Small Talk Saves Lives bystander campaign, launched in November 2017. The first campaign of its type on the railway, it encourages the general public to support those who may be in emotional crisis around them on the railway network.
Wise up, Size up
We delivered a national campaign between June and December 2018, working with the haulage industry and professional drivers challenging them to ‘wise up, size up’.
