LEADERS IN EDGE PROTECTION, WORKING PLATFORMS, POLY BRIDGES & TRACK TO PLATFORM ACCESS FOR THE RAIL INDUSTRY
Railway Safety Solutions Ltd offer a safety barrier system for railway station platforms across the UK and Europe. We provide a complete safety system for contractors to achieve their programmed scopes of work in a safe environment.
We aim to considerably improve railway safety for both passengers and workforce, reducing the potential for injuries on and off the platform.
We do this by ensuring the risk of falls from height are kept to a minimum and we dramatically reduce the risk of people plant interface.
With the posts, poles and toe boards being made from highly visible yellow pultruded glass reinforced plastic (GRP), it offers many advantages over metallic alternatives such as resistance to corrosion, high tensile strength, high impact resistance, lightweight and being non-metallic, has non-conductive properties therefore eliminating the need for bonding when working in an electrified railway environment.Read more
Why choose us?
With these challenges lying ahead, we decided to develop a safety barrier system that reduces and almost eliminates the plant/person interface and fall prevention risk when carrying out maintenance or major refurbishment works on railway station platforms. A plant/person interface is still recognised as one of the key fatal risks within the railway and needs to be addressed to improve railway safety
across the UK & Europe.
Based on these principles we developed the Platform Edge Protection safety barrier system providing sufficient strength to resist the lateral force of someone falling against it and on to the tracks or into the path of road rail vehicles passing through a work-site, thus preventing serious injury and even death.Read more
