As there was an increase in 2017 in the number of accidents involving contractor personnel, the IU initiated a seminar carried out in close collaboration with Infrabel, Tuc Rail and the UETF (union of railway works companies).
The common thread was safety culture during railway work and the basic principles of “hearing, seeing and being seen” during works carried out in and around the tracks.
This first day (19/03/2019) was a great success and attracted a large number of participants.
The presentations of this day are available on the website through this link: See the presentation
We would also like to draw your attention to the tools provided to contractors by the infrastructure manager to train their personnel on safety in and around the tracks: http://securite.elearning.infrabel.be
