This chapter considers the sources of information available to British Railways (BR) staff as well as health and safety training courses and different types of information. Most BR employees were aware that information about health and safety was available to them. Numerous sources were cited, but these were mainly written sources and there was a general perception that verbal communication was much more effective. The main source of unwritten health and safety information was training. This was not perceived as being generally available and when it was, it was not regarded as being high quality.

Keywords:   health and safety regulation, health and safety training, organizational communication, British Railways, employee surveys
