Workshop on Rail Suicide and Trespass Prevention

25 March 2019, Paris, UIC Headquarters


At UIC members’ request, this workshop aims to revisit the RESTRAIL topic and discuss ways of moving forward on the topic.

Participation is free of charge but the number of places is limited. Registration is therefore made on a "first come first served" basis. The presentations and discussions will be in English. We will facilitate participation via web conference for a limited number of participants.


The workshop will take place Monday, 25 March 2019 (from 2:00 PM until 6:00 PM CET) at the UIC Headquarters in Paris.

12:00 Registration
12:30 Welcome lunch
14:00 1st Session
The first session aims to:

  • exchange up-to-date information about best practices within the extended RESTRAIL group;
  • bring together updates for the toolbox, mainly countermeasure evaluation studies and new implementation examples (since the end of RESTRAIL in 2014);
  • identify new solutions to be added in the toolbox;
15:40 Coffee break
16:15 2nd Session
The second session will explore how to:

  • extend the European scope of RESTRAIL to reinforce cooperation with other regions such as the US, Australasia (e.g. links with the GRASP) or Africa;
  • extend and evaluate the RESTRAIL tools cross-culturally (e.g. RESTRAIL countermeasure assessment method, RESTRAIL problem-solving model) with the refreshed network of experts;
  • identify a list of partners who would be interested to join a new research project proposal, if a suitable funding opportunity is identified.
18:00 End of the workshop

The workshop will be followed the next day by the ELCF (European Level Crossing Forum) – a UIC working group involving a related topic and relevant experts. The organisation of these two events on consecutive days aims to optimise expert participation and to further stimulate synergies between safety and security-related topics.
