    System Safety Risk Group Editorial Board

    The purpose of SSRG EB is to advise RSSB on how it should inform operational staff across the railway of the safety risks on behalf of the industry as a whole. This is based on the work of SSRG, with focus on both individual incidents of notice, and overarching trends that become apparent in the industry.

    Scope

    The content of the SSRG communications products should focus on promoting good practice and learning from:

    • Accidents, incidents, precursors and unplanned events on the national rail network due to any cause (excluding public behaviour at level crossings): human error, equipment failure, environment, vandalism, and any other risks in the scope of SSRG
    • Train accident risk at yards, depots and sidings
    • Workforce risk from accidents occurring on the running line; slips, trips and falls; contact with objects; and being struck by trains
    • Health, safety and risk issues in stations and on platforms, including at the platformtrain interface
    • Major international rail events

    The learning from these publications should feed in to the industry's safety strategies, and aid to prevent future incidents on the railway.

    The format of SSRG communications products needs to be accessible to the end audience, in order to ensure maximum impact. As such, the products:

    • Use storytelling as a way of communicating complicated concepts clearly
    • Talk in a way that the target audience of front line operational staff appreciate and understand, possibly being more chatty in tone
    • Are produced using media (film, magazine, web) that are easily accessible

    Message from the chair

    The Editorial Board manages the content and production of the RED videos and Right Track magazines for operational staff across the network.  We look at emerging risk trends and key incidents, focusing on lessons learnt; and produce these in a format that is engaging and accessible.  Rail staff and organisations can use these products in their own contexts.
