Abstract A study in the first half of 1995 analyzed the risks of occupational accidents connected with interference between the cleaning of rolling stock and other railway operations. An important conclusion was that the introduction of a safety plan can be the occasion for changes of attitude on the part of railway operators and external enterprises in favour of closer collaboration.
