Organisations can only adequately control risk through coordinated action. Good planning is essential, during which the organisations must consider how to measure performance. Safety management should be integrated into business objectives at all levels to promote safety throughout an organisation.
Tools and Guidance
Taking Safe Decisions
RSSB’s Taking Safe Decisions (TSD) provides guidance on how organisations can take safety into account when making decisions. Our guidance supports the application of the Common Safety Method for Monitoring and managing safety risk associated with change.
Enabling Better Planning and Resource Management during Disruption
Improving response to and recovery from serious disruption could enhance performance for operators and increase passenger satisfaction. RSSB is developing guidance on contingency planning and resource utilisation during disruptions.
Collaboration between industry leaders is essential to deliver a better, safer railway. Areas of collaboration are described in the industry’s health and safety strategy document Leading Health and Safety on Britain’s Railway. RSSB publishes a quarterly LHSBR progress report.
