Study these facts carefully. Click on the image(s) for a summary in pictures.
- Safety starts with your own behaviour. You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of anyone present who is under your command. Do not enter the danger zone.
- You may only enter the danger zone with the permission of the person who is in charge of your safety and if you use additional safety measures.
- The circumference of the danger zone depends on the maximum speed applicable to that section of the tracks. The suction pressure and pressure wave are variable.
- Keep emergency escape routes and lines of vision free of materials, vehicles and obstacles at all times.
- Danger of collision, tripping and stumbling:
Do not walk across cable ducts or loose tiles and report pot-holes to the OBI.
- Risk of being electrocuted:
Never touch loose cables; these can be live.
- Emergency escape routes:
Report blocked emergency escape routes.
Cross the tracks only on level crossings (for cars, bicycles or pedestrians).
If you see a blinking automatic warning device (WIDO), wait. A train may come;
A continuously lit WIDO means that you can safely cross.
Report any WIDOs that are not lit to the OBI. This is an unusual situation.
- Prohibited on ProRail grounds:
possession and/or use of alcoholic drinks, including low alcohol and/or alcohol-free drinks;
possession and/or use of soft and/or hard drugs;
possession and/or use of response inhibiting medication;
overnight parking of vehicles and/or means of transportation.
