Technical Safety Working Group
The implementation of the assignments of the Technical Safety Working Group, with which DB Group and the Federal police have worked with a new intensity to further develop safety on trains and in stations, was a key aspect of 2021. In joint activities with the Federal Ministry of the Interior (Bundesministerium des Innern und für Heimat; BMI), the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (Bundesministerium für Digitales und Verkehr; BMDV), the Federal police and DB Group, the Working Group has developed structural, staffing and organizational measures and explored their feasibility in conceptual terms with scientific support. Using the existing framework of testing in principle, restructured practical tests of selected technical models are being tested through use in real operating conditions. One focus of these tests is Südkreuz station in Berlin.
