Common Safety Indicators  
 

The European Union collect Common Safety Indicators (CSIs) across Member States. CSIs are a common set of rail safety data, gathered to facilitate the assessment of achievement of Common Safety Targets (CSTs) and monitor the development of safety in Member States.

CSIs are laid down and defined in Annex 1 to the Safety Directive; we publish these indicators in our safety performance report and ERADIS database.

CSIs are based on common definitions and calculation methods, the data set is structured as follows:

  • Significant accidents
  • Deaths and serious injuries
  • Suicides
  • Precursors of accidents
  • Economic impact of accidents
  • Technical aspects (level crossings by type and automatic train protection systems)
  • Management of safety

This information supports Member States in understanding their safety performance and considering sustainability issues during decision making. ERA have developed guidance for CSIs, where explanations, examples and fall back values are provided.
