Passenger protection and personal security

The topic of personal safety in railway vehicles has greatly grown in significance in past years. Since the safety level for railway vehicles has increased in this area, the requirements for personal safety have also greatly risen in response. Special requirements concerning personal safety apply to passenger doors, footbridges, the design of the interior and exterior as well as to noise produced by the vehicle.
On the European level, for border-crossing transport it is necessary to enforce and harmonize the various national personal safety requirements for railway vehicles of various European countries at the same time. It is especially important here to consider the requirements TSI PRM and TSI Noise.

Worker protection in all areas of the train constitutes a separate division of personal safety.
