Safety Department

The Safety department is headed by Principal Chief Safety Officer (PCSO).

Safety is the paramount responsibility of each and every Railway employee. Individual executive and technical departments look after and are accountable for safety within their own departments. The Safety department assists the management in monitoring the implementation of safety measures o­n the Railways and in developing strategies to improve the safety record. The department keeps a vigil over the safe transportation of men and material to detect lacunae in working, conducts inspections to determine if the rules and procedures  governing the running of trains are being followed, and maintains liaison with all departments concerned with train operations. The safety department also gets inquiries conducted into accidents and monitors the follow up action that results from such inquiries.

Safety consciousness  amongst Railway employee is promoted through man to man counseling, safety circulars, safety seminars and safety drives. The Public is made more aware of their role in improving Railway Safety through distribution of posters and pamphlets, plays, advertisements in the local media, cinema slides etc.

Regular reviews of the rules and systems of working are conducted with a view to improving safety and efficiency.
