Welcome to our newest members


We are delighted to welcome three new members this month: Tata Steel UK, TrainsPeople and Storycatchers. RSSB will be supporting Tata Steel UK, one of the world's most geographically diversified steel producers, with their drive to standardise approaches and embed a safety culture across their rail operations. TrainsPeople has joined to ensure their training materials align to RSSB’s Safety Standards. Storycatchers, a marketing agency, joined RSSB to use our insights to ensure their marketing communications for Network Rail (and other rail partners) create maximum impact.

We look forward to working with Tata Steel UK, TrainsPeople and Storycatchers in the years ahead, alongside our existing affiliates and members.
