Reducing Incidents

Body Cameras for Rail

Our body cameras improve interactions between front-facing rail staff, as well as the public, helping to curb instances of verbal or physical violence dramatically.

Throughout our multiple deployments of Body Cameras to Network Rail and train operating companies, we have seen a reduction in complaints, false allegations and, most importantly, the improved safety and confidence of customer-facing staff in the rail industry.

We are proud to supply our body cameras to public transportation workers for a range of applications, including: 

  • Mobile Operations Management: Reducing the risk of confrontations and allowing video to be shared with ROCs to give an overview of incidents.

  • Station Staff Safety: Providing enhanced safety for those in public-facing roles

  • Works Delivery: Recording of activities such as track inspections. Recorded footage can be reviewed for lessons learned and to improve safety levels.

  • Asset Engineers / Buildings Teams: Lone worker protection and operational benefits

Reducing Aggressive Situations

Why should Rail companies use Body Cameras?

Recently published statistics highlight a worrying upward trend in aggression towards rail staff. 

As many as three out of four transport workers have been the victims of verbal abuse in the course of their day-to-day jobs, with 359 workers reporting physical assaults in the last 12 months. 

This level of anti-social behaviour has lasting impacts on rail staff, with many reporting struggles with anxiety due to the abuse they face. This, in turn, creates challenges around staff recruitment and retention within the industry.

Key to the impact of body worn cameras, though, is the transformative effect they have on safety for those on both sides of the camera. Key results our cameras have helped deliver include:

  • Prevention and de-escalation of threatening and aggressive behaviour towards staff

  • Improved confidence of workforce in dealing with challenging situations

  • Capturing video evidence of any incidents to support prosecutions

  • Reduction in complaints and false allegations 

  • Allows for video recording in areas not covered by traditional CCTV

Long-term Benefits

Advantages of owning Body Cameras for Public Transportation Staff

Body Cameras ensure that Public Transportation staff feel safer when working as the cameras act as a deterrent to any situations with the public that may become abusive or threatening. Purchasing body cameras is a one-time investment in the security and safety of your staff, eliminating rental fees and leading to cost-savings over time.

Owning Body Cameras demonstrates long-term commitment, which will make staff feel safer at work. Body Cameras record and gather evidence of any incidences with the public, leading to improved safety and customer service.  

With all staff using the same device type, it reduces the need for regular training and ensures seamless operation and familiarity with using the unit itself, the Evidence Management Software and evidence gathering procedures. By not having to rely on rental agreements, you can be rest assured of continuous operation and protection with minimal down-time disruptions.
