Rail Safety Statistics & Reports

  • RSSB's Annual Health and Safety Report (2022/23)

    RSSB's report unpacks the risks across the rail network, as identified in Leading Health and Safety on Britain’s Railway (LHSBR), and the work that’s under way to avert them.

  • ORR's Annual Health and Safety Report (2021/22)

    ORR's report highlights marked improvement in track worker safety risk exposure. Ensuring that the mainline rail industry remains focused on the basics of health & safety management as it prepares for reform and substantial change is one of the key messages.  The report highlights that Britain’s railways remain amongst the safest in Europe and that risk on the mainline railway is at an all-time low. However, concerns remain about recent accidents and near misses, particularly in non-mainline sectors, and the need to strengthen safety management and oversight following the pandemic.
