Create an internet application which can be used from any computer with access to the Internet - the UIC Safety Database. The main purpose of the database is to serve as an international railway safety database.
Objective is to collect and distribute information on railway accidents to allow permanent monitoring of railway safety, benchmarking and analysis of trends and follow up actions for UIC members.
The information stored in the database will be used to:
- provide feedback and exchange information promptly,
- prepare safety cases,
- draw up statistics,
- determine the railways position in relation to other transport modes and for
- risk assessments and
- proactive safety management
The UIC Safety database. Accessible here: https://safetydb.uic.org/spip.php?article1
The application enables users to enter events on railway accidents / incidents, search for information and compile various statistics.
More than 20 000 significant accidents from 20 European countries are described in the Safety Database. SDB also registers the total number of critical events, suicides and attempt of suicide.
