Saint-Nazaire english summary

The tragic circumstances surrounding the death by electrocution on April 17, 2004, of a teen-ager standing on the top of a wagon stabled in the Saint-Nazaire train station, led the Minister to request that the director of the BEA-TT launch a technical inquiry.

The results of the investigation led to the formulation of recommendations on the following :
- strengthening the robustness of fences around specific railway facilities,
- reinforcement of signage warning against electrical hazards,
- preventive information to specific target groups,
- response instructions for the emergency services,
- improvement of the exchange of information between the emergency services and the French National Railway Company - the SNCF.
