    Everyone home safe every day

  • Mark CarneKeeping people safe on the railway is at the heart of everything we do.

    We’re creating a culture and system which will be sustainable for years to come and help us deliver not only a safer but a better performing and more efficient railway.

    In March 2014 Mark Carne, our chief executive, started the cascade of the safety statement to our people, contractors and subcontractors. The commitments apply to everyone who works on the railway.
