    Message from the chair

    TOM SC considers the interfaces between the structural subsystems (signalling, rolling stock, track, structures and electrification) and the people that interact with it (signallers, drivers, guards, trackworkers).  We oversee the development and maintenance of standards, guidance notes and other documents which support transport operators in developing and reviewing their safety management systems  and associated processes and procedures.  We work collaboratively with others to deliver the improvements that are necessary to provide a better, safer railway
