Safety is one of Finrail’s values and lays the foundation for its operations. Ensuring safety and working for the achievement of a safe rail system is part of our daily work. Safety culture requires that the entire personnel is active, works together and assumes a responsible attitude to safety in their own work.
Maintenance and the development of the safety level is a prerequisite for Finrail’s operations. Finrail’s safety activities seek to prevent accidents in movement and traffic in the rail environment, to ensure uninterrupted railway traffic and to forestall disruptions. Our duty is to ensure that passengers and freight are transported safely to their destinations.
To ensure comprehensive safety in rail traffic requires close collaboration between the various actors operating in the sector. Regarding safety in railway traffic, Finrail collaborates with the Finnish Transport Agency, the Finnish Transport Safety Agency, Trafi and the Safety Investigation Authority, and with other actors in the railway sector.
