Rail Safety Review

Rail Safety Review is a monthly report designed to ‘scratch the brains’ of readers by providing thought-provoking articles, updates on the latest developments in research and important lessons from the past that today’s railway needs to remember.

‘RSR’ is drawn from the railway’s collective knowledge and aims to link incidents and learning to Safety Management System arrangements. 

We cover virtually every safety subject you can think of, from the risk at the platform-train interface, to signals passed at danger. We consider the workforce, passengers and the public, GB and overseas incidents, and strive to keep the corporate memory alive by remembering the important lessons learnt from accidents like Clapham (1988), Southall (1997) and Ladbroke Grove (1999).  

Many articles are written by RSSB staff, but much material is provided by our members. For example, the National Freight Safety Group has a regular column, while a number of train operators and infrastructure firms use the report to share best practice.
