TrackSAFE and the rail industry provide a variety of resources for school students about how to stay safe on and around rail.
Trains and trams cannot swerve or stop quickly to avoid a person, bicycle, car or truck and unfortunately each year there are accidents and near hits involving young people.
There are a variety of resources available for different age groups as well as information for teachers, parents, community members and rail staff.
