Treść
Safety is an essential condition for sustainable development of the railway companies, and consequently, each railway operator should maintain and increase safety level within its activities. European railways are continually strive to improve safety and reduce number of accidents, and the requirements for incident reporting and analysis are imposed on them by European Commission regulations. According to these regulations, every accidents should be reported and carefully analysed in order to determine the failure and also to assess appropriate compensation. The safety culture and accidents monitoring implementation are the responsibility of the national and European regulators. The most important indicators and trends related to the state of safety on European railways obtained based on the above-mentioned reports and available statistical data were presented in the paper. The accidents causes have been analysed and corrective actions that can be taken to improve safety and to reduce accident costs were indicated. Although the analysis results clearly show that consistent efforts in the area of safety lead to structural reduction in the number of incidents, there is still scope of the improvement in many areas. The comparative analysis of the safety indicators in the individual European countries was also included in this paper. It turned out that a small group of countries is responsible for a significant part of accidents. These countries need to pay more attention to the implementation of appropriate corrective actions. Past practical experiences show that costs of preventive measures are smaller than costs of eliminating the effects of events.
