(:)          Data not available
(r)          Data revised
(p)         Data are provisional
(b) Break in time series
 
Notes:
1. Mainline data broken down by worker type is not currently available from RSSB. Therefore, data is presented at an aggregate 'all workers' level.
 
(b) There is a series break between 2006-07 and 2007-08 for mainline data. Due to a new reporting system being implemented in March 2017, RSSB has refreshed the back series to 2007-08 to mirror their Annual Safety Performance Report coverage. Therefore, any comparisons with data prior to 2007-08 should be treated with caution.
More details on methodology can be found in the quality report relating to this dataset:
