Rail Safety Week


Rail Safety Week (RSW) is an Australasian Railway Association (ARA)/TrackSAFE initiative that has been running since 2006. RSW aims to improve education and awareness around railway level crossing and track safety.
Traditionally, RSW is held in the second week of August each year, dates for 2020 are 11-16 August.
Over the years, more and more rail organisations have become involved in this community education initiative by visiting schools, holding competitions, running advertising campaigns, and ultimately increasing awareness of the importance of rail safety.
Rail participants target specific rail safety areas to increase safety within the communities that they work within.
RSW is effective in raising awareness and knowledge in Australasian communities about the potentially devastating consequences of not exercising caution or obeying the rules around railways and tram networks.
