Our new full 80x cab simulators are also being thrown open to celebrate their implementation, offering colleagues and key stakeholders an opportunity to experience what it is like to be at the helm of our award-winning fleet of trains.

On Wednesday 26 June at 22:00, Siemens teams in Moy Road will participate in a health & wellbeing briefing on Silica Dust. This construction dust is more than a nuisance. Silica is a substance naturally found in certain types of stone, rock, sand and clay. Working with these materials can create a very fine dust that can be easily inhaled.

With civils works a relevant part of what we deliver on the rail infrastructure, we will be having a session on the harm Silica can cause.
