How Tom helped deliver handheld technology that makes rail travel safer


How do you make the entire rail network safer? How do you minimise risks along thousands of miles of track? And how do you do it efficiently and cost-effectively?

Part of the answer lies in Tom’s hands. He’s been working as part of an expert team to deliver to deadline a complex data capture and reporting system for Network Rail. 

"I get to work on projects that make a difference to people’s lives — and that means a lot to me.”


The team has designed a mobile app that helps Network Rail’s 14,000-strong workforce communicate to manage safety, reduce risk, and create track inspection and maintenance efficiencies. This should lead to 1.3 billion safer rail journeys every year, and £10 million saved over the next five years.
