Rail workers experience 'close calls' on hand-held devices

Rail workers experience 'close calls' on hand-held devices
No matter what the hour and conditions rail workers are trackside. Whilst performing their work they can use hand-held devices to send on-the-spot reports when they encounter anything untoward that raises safety concerns. The result is a huge, expanding and potentially very valuable database of these ‘close calls’ and it could make a big contribution to improvements in railway safety.
