Assault against DB employees
The main victims of assault are employees working in passenger transport (54%) and at DB Security (43%). The additional 3% can be attributed to other business units. DB Group has responded with improved training for security staff and train attendants, increased security staff and better equipment. In the year under review, DB Group employees were assaulted more than 2,500 times across Germany (previous year: more than 2,600 times). This shows that the steady increase recorded in recent years has come to an end for the first time since 2012. At the same time, the number of serious injuries has declined, showing that the security concept is effective.
