2015 - Workshop on "Coping with terrorism: the role of Human Factors"


This workshop took place in the wake of terrorist attacks that affected France and other countries at the beginning of the year.

More generally this workshop, organized both by the International Union of Railways (UIC) within the framework of its security activity and Russian Railways (RZD) as chairman of the security working group dedicated to human factors, is one of the requests by UIC members.

Firstly this day will be an opportunity for the members to exchange experiences on antiterrorism. Otherwise a session should be dedicated to organizational and human factors in the field of antiterrorism; it will be also the opportunity to cover topics such as training for railway staff in connection with police forces.

Finally, awareness and prevention in security crisis management and crisis communication for staff, citizens and media could be addressed accordingly with the expectations of the participants.
