Project Group Security of Stations – Second Expert Workshop held on 12 May in Paris

Share this article

The aim of this project group is to analyse effective solutions for station security measures and their impact on station business elements and customer perception.

This information will then be collated in a dedicated handbook to be presented during the NextStation Conference, which will be held from 19 – 20 October 2017 in Madrid.

Around 12 security and station manager experts attended the second Expert Workshop, which focused on organisational and procedural security measures. They discussed, inter alia, the added value of cooperation with third parties, e.g. with state institutions or national security policy, the use of alcohol prohibition, crisis management, the influence of music as well as the process to implement marshalling yards – this is just an excerpt of the topics discussed during the workshop session.

The next workshops with security and station manager experts will take place on the following dates:

  • 6 June 2017 in Paris, France – during the Security Week
  • 14 June 2017 in Moscow, Russia – focusing on human factor measures
