FORGET youth gangs, level crossings and overhead electrical wires. New data from Queensland Rail has revealed the biggest danger to train commuters is themselves.
The number of people injured while running for trains or leaving platforms climbed again in the year to June 30, to about two every weekday.
The increase comes despite a "positive and colourful" poster campaign by Queensland Rail urging people not to fall down, and to "beware closing doors".
The rate of injuries has increased steadily in the past few years to 475 in the 12-months to June up from 416 in 2011.
Transport Minister Scott Emerson said he wanted to draw attention to the issue in this Rail Safety Week.
"I'm concerned when I see an increase like this, particularly the number of people hurting themselves because they were not paying attention or rushing to catch the train," Mr Emerson said.
