The 2014 TfL Business Plan says, "We'll equip our employees with the latest mobile technology so they can get the information needed to help customers on the move" What risk assessment have you undertaken regarding employees using this technology late at night in a single staffed station?

TfL will never compromise on staff safety or security. It is undertaking local risk assessments at every station to ensure the Tube's excellent safety record is maintained for both staff and customers.

London Underground has consulted closely with partners, including the British Transport Police, on every element of the planned changes - including the introduction of mobile devices, which many staff already use today.  TfL will continue these discussions as they introduce the changes.
