Stand Back, Look Up, Stay Rail Safe

TrackSAFE launched its latest rail safety campaign in Rail Safety Week 2021.

The campaign, STAND BACK, LOOK UP, STAY RAIL-SAFE features Paralympian Vanessa Low sharing her own lived experience as a rail accident survivor.

Campaign key messages:

  1. A moment of distraction can change your life forever.
  2. Unsafe actions around trains and trams can affect a rail worker’s life forever.
  3. A person is killed or injured on the Australian rail network every 2.5 days.
  4. Stand back. Look Up. Stay Railsafe.

These messages are relevant across passenger, freight and light rail operations.

For more campaign information see Rail Safety Week.


Stop. Look Up. Stay Rail Safe – Level crossings

Whether you’re a cyclist or pedestrian always STAND BACK. LOOK UP. STAY RAIL SAFE before crossing at a level crossing. Trains can’t swerve & can take up to 14 football fields to stop. Whether you’re a motorist or pedestrian, don’t try to beat a train; ensure there is enough time for you to safely cross tracks. For motorists, always ensure there is enough space for your vehicle on the other side of a level crossing before making the decision to cross.

Too many collisions and near hits occur at level crossings.

To assist in promoting safe practices by pedestrians, car and truck drivers near level crossings, several new safety posters have been developed.

Watch Out. Speak Up. Stay Rail Safe.

In addition to the public facing STAND BACK. LOOK UP. STAY RAIL SAFE, and level crossing safety collateral, TrackSAFE also has available material targeting the rail workforce.

These messages aim to remind workers of the importance of being aware of their surroundings, creating a safe working environment and encouraging workers to speak up if they are concerned about their own, or a workmates safety.

Campaign key messages:

  1. A moment of distraction can change your life forever
  2. Speak up when it comes to keeping you and your workmates safe
