RSSI and Tended Win Spotlight Awards for Commitment to Rail Safety

Enhancing Rail Safety: Recognition for Tended-RSSI Geofencing Breakthrough

In a significant stride towards enhancing rail safety, Tended and RSS Infrastructure (RSSI) was awarded the Commitment to Safety award at the 2024 SPOTLIGHT Rail Awards. This accolade recognised their innovative integration of geofencing technology within the rail sector, heralding a new era of safety protocols and practices.

The prestigious ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London recognises outstanding contributions to railway safety and progress. Among a cohort of esteemed nominees, including Frauscher UK, Siemens, and South Western Railway, Tended and RSSI stood out, illustrating the industry’s competitive and forward-thinking landscape.

Improving Rail Safety and Mitigating Risk

The partnership’s initiative, celebrated for its dedication to safety, dovetails with Network Rail’s guiding principle of “Everyone Home Safe Every Day,” which prioritises safety from the outset. The judges lauded the initiative’s alignment with this ethos by deploying geofencing technology to mitigate track worker risks as a pioneering step.

Commencing last year, the collaboration between Tended and RSSI focused on applying geofencing technology across rail projects, marrying Tended’s advanced solutions with RSSI’s extensive safety expertise. RSSI is equipped to manage geofencing comprehensively, offering dry hire and managed services, marking a robust approach to enhancing workplace safety.

Achieved Zero Accident Frequency Rate

The collaboration’s success in the SPOTLIGHT Rail Awards centred around a 2023 project that notably achieved a zero Accident Frequency Rate, among other significant safety milestones. This initiative ensured adherence to Network Rail’s Safety Standards and cultivated positive behavioural shifts among workers, heightening hazard awareness.
