The RESTRAIL Toolbox: a problem-solving guide for implementation of measures to prevent railway suicides and trespassing accidents

The RESTRAIL Toolbox is a problem-solving guide for implementation of measures to prevent railway suicides and trespassing accidents and to mitigate the post incident consequences. It is the main output of the RESTRAIL research project and it aims to be a helpful, intuitive and user-friendly tool. It summarises practical information collected and produced during the project (synthesis, guidelines, best practice, lessons learned and empirical evidence for effectiveness). The content also makes links with scientific publications which support the recommended measures, providing a wide list of references (peer-reviewed articles, research reports, reviews, etc.).

The Toolbox is designed to help railway undertakings (RUs), infrastructure managers (IMs), station managers and other concerned decision makers in three ways:

1. lead them through the process of selecting from the range of preventative and mitigation measures,
2. provide more detailed guidance on the implementation of those measures and
3. provide a framework for collecting and structuring information in order to feed an accessible and documented database on measures for implementation and efficiency across the rail community and beyond.
