Safety

The safety of passengers and staff is a first priority for the CFL.

 

Through a solemn declaration distributed to all railway workers, safety has become the consideration that prevails above all others. The results speak for themselves. Train travel is by far the safest means of transport.​​​​​​​​​​​

​​10 Steps to rail cool​

In February 2012, the CFL launched an awareness campaign, encouraging young people to behave in a safe and respectful manner.

The film entitled "10 steps to rail cool" was made by young people for young people in order to get the message across in a relaxed and fun way. It was made in co-operation with young actors from the Artistekëscht - Kanner an Jugendtheater Käl/Téiteng group.

The film can be found on

International Level Crossing Awareness-Day (ILCAD)

 

Under the slogans ‘Act safely at level crossings’ and ‘Aux passages à niveau, priorité à la vie’, the railway community is organising an International Level Crossing Awareness Day - ILCAD in more than 42 countries across the world in co-operation with a growing number of organisations from the road sector.

Since 2010, the CFL has been giving out a leaflet entitled "Ne jouez pas avec les feux" (Don’t play with fire) and posters about how to act at level crossings.

With the aim of making people aware of the rules to be respected at level crossings, 150.000 leaflets have been distributed in places such as schools located in the neighbourhood of level crossings, town halls, service stations and transport companies.

​​​Awareness-raising campaigns

The CFL regularly carry out awareness-raising campaigns.
 

  • Safety at level crossings

 Each year, the CFL take part in the International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD).

In order to raise awareness about the importance of following the highway code at level crossings, 150.000 leaflets were distributed in schools located close to level crossings, in local government offices, service stations and transport companies. One of these leaflets is entitled "Ne jouez pas avec les feux" (Don't gamble with level crossing lights), and the CFL also publishes posters entitled "Ne jouez pas avec les feux et Professionnel de la route" (Don't gamble with traffic lights and Road transport professionals).

Under the slogans "Act safely at level crossings" and "Aux passages à niveau, priorité à la vie" (Life has priority at level crossings), the railway community, in collaboration with a growing number of organisations in the road transport sector, is organising the International Level Crossing Awareness Day in over 42 countries worldwide.
