Australia: Research into intentional death on the railway

23 Mar

The Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention (AISRAP) has been commissioned to assess the feasibility for a national TrackSAFE register and will profile persons who choose rail as a means of taking their life. This exploratory research project will work with coroners across the jurisdictions to get a concrete picture of intentional death on the railway so that TrackSAFE can develop campaigns and strategies that speak to those demographics. TrackSAFE is hopeful that the information provided will be useful for our partners in the industry as we work together to address incidents on our networks.
