OUR VISION

In the Netherlands, as many as 10% of all suicides are rail-related. In Germany, 7% of all suicides occur in this manner. To deal with an average of three suicide incidents per day, Deutsche Bahn is operating a sanatorium specifically for traumatized train drivers.In recent years, some German train drivers succeeded in getting compensation payments from parents or spouses. In Sweden, less densely populated and with a smaller proportion of the population living in proximity of railroad tracks, 5% of all suicides are rail-related. In Belgium, nearly 6 percent of suicides are rail related with a disproportionate amount occurring in the Dutch-speaking.
