Safety

Safety is always on our agenda.  ÖBB-Infrastruktur ensures safe, reliable railway operation. Our responsibility ranges from the provision of safe facilities through signalling and control to intensive cooperation with the emergency services. On railway stations as well, we give of our best, so that you feel safe.

Safe travel

You travel safely and reliably on the entire ÖBB-Infrastruktur network. This is true also of the railway stations, where we are always concerned for your safety. Please consult our House Rules.

Safety at work

ÖBB-Infrastruktur is responsible for a rail network about 5,000 kilometres in length. Every day we undertake a vast range of work on the tracks, sometimes during live operation, to modernise and maintain our railway. Safety is our highest priority in this area. Our safety at work policy is designed to reduce accidents and the consequences of accidents.

Safe network

Safe facilities are the basic prerequisites for safe rail traffic. The Network Status Report awards ÖBB-Infrastruktur a high status in all areas. ÖBB-Infrastruktur ensures precision maintenance of rails, switches, bridges and tunnels, sound control, safety and electronic technology, reliable telecoms and protection systems, modern buildings, platforms and much more. In addition, we invest in, maintain and inspect our infrastructure. Our professional incident management operates for you round the clock as and when required. Forests protect the rail network from avalanches, rock slides and other natural hazards. Where there is no forest protection, we build structures to protect you. These include protective barriers, rock fall protection nets and rock consolidation systems.

 

Modern operational management

The requirements for the technical systems are high. With our investment in a modern systems landscape and our well-trained specialists we have created the prerequisites for economic and efficient signalling and control management providing high standards of safety and reliability.
