Official AusRAIL Charity

The TrackSAFE Foundation was established by the Australian rail industry to reduce near collisions, injuries and fatalities on the rail network resulting from suicide, reckless behaviour and human error. By doing so, TrackSAFE aims to create a better workplace for rail employees. At TrackSAFE we recognise that the responsibility of rail safety extends beyond rail organisations to educational and community service groups, governments, road user groups and the broader community. In lieu of gifts, AusRAIL proudly makes a donation to the TrackSAFE Foundation each year on behalf of our speakers.
