Safety Alert IT tool Safety Alert IT tool

The new “Safety Alert IT tool” system (hereinafter SAIT) was presented by the European Union Agency for Railways at the Innotrans fair in September 2016. The discussions that took place in the various workshops including the stakeholders led to the overall set-up of this acknowledged IT tool. Nevertheless, the practical and efficient use of this tool needs to be based on clear rules and robust processes in order to support railway safety in Europe.

CER underlines that some key issues remain to be necessarily solved before such a system can be broadly and effectively used and stakeholders can gain confidence in its application.
