Scotrail launch safety drive

SCOTRAIL has launched a high-profile campaign aimed at reducing the number of accidents at stations across Scotland.

The SafeStations campaign follows more than 650 injuries caused by trips, slips and falls at stations since April 2009.

Although the numbers are steady year-on-year, and the vast majority were minor incidents, ScotRail is determined to use SafeStations to urge customers, especially children, to take extra care.

The campaign features children’s videos on the train operator’s new YouTube channel which aim to teach children important lessons about how to stay safe on Scotland’s railways. Two further SafeStations videos, for teenagers and grandparents, have also been uploaded at

It will also include safety talks at schools, downloadable safety education packs and a poster competition.
