  • TRESPAD, INTERNATIONAL trespass AWARENESS DAY campaign AND INTERNATIONAL Conference, 5 June 2024

Trespass and Suicide events affect the whole of the rail industry with an adverse impact on safety, performance, reputation, costs and efficiency. It affects all parts of the business and the society as a whole and is therefore something that we must tackle together.
The International Trespass Awareness Day (TRESPAD) is also a UIC initiative to prevent railway trespassing.
The Trespass and Suicide Prevention Conference to launch this second “TRESPAD” campaign aims to share with industry partners the key activities that existing programmes are undertaking. Through this conference we will aim to identify what exists, what else is needed, what individual organisations can do to help prevent trespass and suicides and how we can work much closer together on these issues. The very first edition was launched in Denver, USA on 9 June 2022, hosted by AAR/FRA/OLE.

ILCAD 6 June

The International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) is a worldwide initiative to improve awareness of level crossing safety. Since 2009 the campaign has been spearheaded by the International Union of Railways (UIC), the worldwide railway organisation with the support of the railway community around the world. About 50 countries usually take part in the ILCAD annual campaign.

Public targeted during ILCAD 2024 campaign: “Vulnerable users”
Each year, a partner country hosts the launch events where we may share good practices and projects to improve safety and reduce the accident toll.

This conference attracts railway industry representatives, road authorities, academics, and many others from around the world who are working to raise awareness about the dangers surrounding level crossings.
The 16th edition of the International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) campaign will be launched on 6 June 2024 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. (more info later)
