    Personpåkörningar med tåg inom Stockholmsområdet 2005-2008: kartläggning och analys2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract

    Inom järnvägstrafiken i Sverige dör årligen 80-100 personer på grund av påkörningar mellan tåg och människa. De bakomliggande orsakerna kan vara både avsiktliga (suicid) och oavsiktliga (olycksfall). Följderna är allvarliga och innebär stora konsekvenser för offer och dess anhöriga, vittnen till påkörning, operatörer som kör tåg samt de som förvaltar bansträckning. Inom tidigare nationell forskning har framkommit att flest påkörningar sker i storstadsområden och av den anledningen har fokus på aktuellt arbete lagts inom Stockholmsområdet. Avsikten med studien är att analysera påkörningar mellan person och tåg som dokumenterats av Banverket (nuvarande Trafikverket) inom Stockholms storstadsregion år 2005 2008, detta för att klargöra om särskilda mönster och geografiska problemområden framträder och utifrån den informationen diskutera preventiva åtgärder. Syftet är också att diskutera hur BV belyser problemet i sin dokumentation av olycks- och suicidhändelser. Datainsamling har skett via Banverkets rapporteringssystem Synergi samt genom att studera STRIX-film som gjorts av spårmiljön inom aktuellt område. Tydliga resultat visar att: flest påkörningar sker på och omkring stationer (trafikplatser) inom Stockholmsområdet, de flesta händelserna har blivit bevittnade av andra resenärer, flertalet som omkommit är män med suicidala avsikter och av offren är närmare 70 % i åldrarna 15-44 år, händelsen inträffar oftare fram mot sen eftermiddag, tågtrafikstag som varit inblandad i flest händelser är pendeltåg och Arlanda express och för systemägare innebär händelsen att tågtrafiken blir påverkad/stoppad i 1 2 timmar. I många fall råder en tillfredställande dokumentation och utredning av händelsen och om den kan läsas ihop med polisrapport ges en tydlig bild av vad som inträffat. Utifrån var flest påkörningar sker, bör preventionssatsningar i första hand utvecklas vid plattformen inom trafikplatserna

    Självmord och självmordsprevention i samband med järnvägstrafik: En forskningsöversikt2003Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Självmord är ett omfattande folkhälsoproblem, såväl nationellt som internationellt. I Sverige dör 1200-1500 personer årligen p.g.a. självmord och av dessa inträffar ca. 5 % i samband med järnvägstrafik. Eftersom järnvägen utvecklats till ett mycket säkert transportsystem för resande och järnvägsanställda innebär detta att självmord kommit att bli det dominerande säkerhetsproblemet inom spårtrafiken. Självmordshändelser innebär också ett allvarligt arbetsmiljöproblem för tågpersonalen och ett omfattande driftproblem för trafikansvariga.

    I denna forskningsöversikt sammanställs aktuell kunskap från den vetenskapliga litteraturen inom området järnvägsrelaterade självmord med utblick mot självmord och självmordsprevention i allmänhet. Syftet är att ge ett underlag för forskning som kan bidra till en minskning av de järnvägsrelaterade självmordsincidenternas antal och allvarlighet.

    Systeminriktad prevention av järnvägssjälvmord: Strategiutveckling i en svensk kontext2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Abstract

    Railway suicide constitutes a limited but significant fraction of all suicides, and a majority of all railway-related deaths, in Sweden as well as in many other countries. The aim of this thesis is to develop the scientific basis for the prevention of railway suicide, with special regard to knowledge and strategies within the reach of the railway system owners themselves.

    An initial descriptive epidemiologic study showed that railway suicide episodes cluster in densely populated areas, and that victims often seem to await approaching trains for some time on or close to tracks before being hit. This means that preventive efforts can be prioritized to geographically limited areas and that there exists a time margin for early detection, forewarning, braking, rescuing, and the like. Secondly, a theoretical study was conducted in order to derive an overview of theoretically possible barriers aimed at preventing railway suicide. The approach is based on the comparison and synthesis of theories and models from suicidology and safety sciences applied to the railway suicide phenomenon. This led to a list of possible barriers, also intended as a checklist. This was followed by a multiple case study, where a number of authentic cases were analysed in-depth on the basis of investigation reports by the police and railway officials, plus complementary researcher observations from the actual sites of the suicide occurrences. The study revealed some deficiency in current investigation and reporting routines from a preventative viewpoint and indicated the potential for a broader and more systematic collection of prevention-relevant information in immediate connection with the events. Finally, a focus group study, involving safety practitioners from both the railway and other sectors, confirmed a general understanding and acceptance among practitioners of the theoretically derived principles, and a readiness to broaden the scope of railway safety to include approaches to prevent suicide.

    In conclusion, it should be possible to influence the occurrence of railway suicides by means available within the railway transport system itself. A spectrum of possible alternative barriers is identified, as well as an, as yet, underutilized potential in the form of more systematic data collection and learning routines from actual events. Last but not least, there is a readiness among practitioners to incorporate these principles in regular railway safety work.

    Suicide Prevention in Railway Systems: Application of a Barrier Approach2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is part of a broader research program aiming at safer railway systems with regard to suicide risks. The specific aim of this paper is to theoretically derive and categorise a set of railway suicide prevention strategies with special regard to measures under the potential control of the railway system-owners.

    The methodological approach departs from synthesizing generic accident and suicide prevention models. Secondly, potential barriers are identified by means of fault tree analysis (FTA), and thirdly results from this analysis are validated against Haddons ten energy-based injury prevention strategies.

    Our results include 20 separate preventive strategies, of which most are in reach of railway system-owners themselves. Four of them aim to reduce perceived attractiveness and availability, nine aim to influence accessibility to track areas and the potential of collision, five strategies aim to mitigate consequences of collision, and three encompass medical survival and recovery strategies.

    To evaluate the barriers practical feasibility, etc., is beyond the aim of this study. However, technological development and innovations may turn less realistic alternatives today into more realistic possibilities tomorrow, as has been proven in other fields.

    Suicides and other fatalities from train-person collisions on Swedish railroads: a descriptive epidemiologic analysis as a basis for system-oriented prevention2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Problem: Suicide is a dominating, although hidden, safety problem on Swedish railroads. The aim of this paper is to describe the epidemiology of fatal train-person collisions as a basis for systems-oriented prevention. Method: Data on collision circumstances were collected from narrative reports at the Swedish National Rail Administration. Results: The events were evenly distributed by months and weekdays, however most suicides occur in day-time while unintentional events usually occur at night. Most train-person collisions happened in densely populated areas, and 75 % of the suicide victims were waiting on the track before the collision. Significance test between types of injury event (suicide, accident or unknown intent) showed small or no differences. Conclusion: Traditional approaches to accident prevention by systems modification seem largely applicable to combat railroad suicide as well. Impact on industry: Our findings show promising preventive potentials

    Suicide and potentials for suicide prevention on the Swedish Rail Network; a qualitative multiple case study2006Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Acts of suicide committed on railways represent a serious public health and railway safety problem. Suicides constitute about 75% of all deaths in person-train collisions in Sweden. Yet, suicide prevention attracts little attention in railway safety. The specific objectives of this study are to evaluate existing police and rail administration reports on railway suicide incidents from a preventive perspective, and to identify and categorize additional preventive-oriented information on place, behaviour and other circumstances, potentially available from site investigations. Method: A multiple case study approach is employed. Twenty-two cases of railway suicide have been reviewed, based on regular police and rail administration reports plus observations from complementary site visits. Findings: Neither police nor rail administration reports include sufficient information to guide future safety work. Findings from site visits show that structured preventive-oriented investigation routines may add important complementary details on environmental, technical and behavioural issues. Conclusion: Relevant data on behavioural, technical and environmental circumstances facilitating railway suicide need to be collected and analyzed by those responsible on a regular basis as an integral part of their safety work

    Railway suicide analysis and Prevention in a Swedish context2008Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Suicide is a dominating, although hidden, safety problem on Swedish railroads. The aim of my first paper (Rådbo et al, 2005) is to describe the epidemiology of fatal train-person collisions as a basis for systems-oriented prevention. Data on collision circumstances were collected from narrative reports at the Swedish National Rail Administration. Results shows how the events were evenly distributed by months and weekdays, however most suicides occur in day-time while unintentional events usually occur at night. Most train-person collisions happened in densely populated areas, and 75 % of the suicide victims were waiting on or close to the track before the collision. Significance test between types of injury event (suicide, accident or unknown intent) showed small or no differences, and one conclusion is that traditional approaches to accident prevention by systems modification seem largely applicable to combat railroad suicide as well. Our findings show promising preventive potentials. The aim of my second paper (Rådbo et al, 2007) is to theoretically derive and categorise a set of railway suicide prevention strategies with special regard to measures under the potential control of the railway system-owners. The methodological approach departs from synthesizing generic accident and suicide prevention models. Secondly, potential barriers are identified by means of fault tree analysis (FTA), and thirdly results from this analysis are validated against Haddons ten energy-based injury prevention strategies.Our results include 20 separate preventive strategies, of which most are in reach of railway system-owners themselves. Four of them aim to reduce perceived attractiveness and availability, nine aim to influence accessibility to track areas and the potential of collision, five strategies aim to mitigate consequences of collision, and three encompass medical survival and recovery strategies.To evaluate the barriers practical feasibility, etc., is beyond the aim of this study. However, technological development and innovations may turn less realistic alternatives today into more realistic possibilities tomorrow, as has been proven in other fields.Further researchAt the ERA seminar I also will tell you about further research and my two not yet publicized studies that includes in my theses. The aim of my third paper Suicide and potentials for suicide prevention on the Swedish Rail Network; a qualitative multiple case study is to evaluate the content of existing reports on railway suicide incidents from a preventive perspective and to identify and categorise additional preventive-oriented information from independent site investigations. The overall goal of my fourth study Feasibility of railway suicide prevention strategies; a focus group study is to explore preferences for preventative strategies against railway suicide among relevant professional groups. More specifically, this study aims are to analyze the acceptance and understanding of theoretically and empirically derived preventative strategies among selected professional groups, and to validate and further develop these strategies.
