One in Three Public Transport Workers are Exposed to Health and Safety Risks

Safety at work is paramount at all times. Fast-paced shifts during long days and nigre not foreign in the transport industry. Bus drivers, underground workers, platform workers and other public transport staff are constantly exposed to dangers and hazards on the job. With the help of SFC, this can be minimised by taking careful consideration into the suitable footwear provided.

According to a report from the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, one in three public transport workers are exposed to health and safety risks. The report, which surveyed over 4,000 public transport workers in EU countries, found that 32% of respondents had been exposed to at least one health and safety risk in the past year.

Working in the public transport sector can be dangerous for a number of reasons

The hazards your teams face include:

  • Slippery floors
  • Lack of signage
  • High-risk stairs 
  • Contaminated floor surfaces

Hazards such as these can cause minor to severe injuries, or worse – a fatality.

The accelerated pace and continuous movements associated with public transport keep your employees at risk of slip and fall accidents. Hazardous work conditions further expose your team to life-threatening dangers and increase the likelihood that a slip-and-fall related accident or injury will occur.

  • Liability claims
  • Lawsuits
