SAFER TRAINS,
SAFER TRACKS

As part of our transparency initiative, we now publish safety statistics on our trains and on the French rail network. That includes incident tracking—an integral part of our work as a rail operator and acting infrastructure manager for the French rail network. Reports, audits, minutes and more are just a click away.

SAFETY
REPORTS

SNCF safety reports offer a wide-angle view of the steps we’re taking to keep the rail system safe, as well as updates on ongoing investigations.

Our Annual Safety Report documents incidents, accidents and safety-related findings, plus the procedures we’re deploying to improve network safety. The report focuses on three separate areas that cover all of SNCF’s operations: cross-functional activities within SNCF, our activities as a rail operator, and our activities as acting infrastructure manager for the French rail network.


RAIL INCIDENTS

Incidents are a part of any rail operation. Thanks to regulations and safety margins, impacts are usually limited to equipment, but we’re making the network safer by collecting feedback and analysing the cause of each incident.

SAFETY AUDITS

We also publish internal letters following up on the biennial safety audits conducted at all 200 of our rail facilities. The head of each facility receives a follow-up letter containing its scores, the key audit findings, and the auditor’s recommendations for corrective action.
