24.1 Training of staff to identify different trespassers

The goal of this measure is to help railway staff prevent trespassing problems by preparing them to identify and approach different types of trespassers. This measure is suitable for the personnel at stations, crossings, or other situations where staff may be able to identify a trespasser and start an intervention. This type of training is complementary to the gatekeeper training in the sense that it prepares the staff to detect people at risk (not restricted to suicide) and to recognize and approach different trespasser profiles (e.g., youngsters, thieves, homeless people looking for shelter, people in a hurry taking a shortcut, disoriented tourists, etc.).
  • The training program might not be as intensive as gatekeeper training.
