Presentation

The UIC Safety Database (UIC-SDB) is an internet application organised within the Safety Platform activities. It is continuously maintained and developed, according to the necessities introduced by safety managers and EU Bodies.

The Safety Database is particularly focused on:

  • Provide Members network with statistics and trends on railway accidents and permit them a detailed analysis of safety statistics based on knowledge about their own circumstances.
  • Complement national network Safety Management Systems, by providing a benchmarking with other networks performance.
