The event was open to IRM members from various sectors and organisations. Its purpose was to explore how the practical application of different tools and techniques can provide insight into how businesses identify, manage, and control risks.

RSSB’s presentation was titled ‘Horizon Scanning approaches: helping enhance risk management in rail’. It provided an overview of horizon scanning to introduce the approach. It then explored how risk managers can use the method to complement their existing professional practice. 

Our Foresight and Horizon Scanning team shared examples of their current work with: 

  • the Rail Industry Risk Forum
  • the Freight Safe Programme
  • the Rail Resilience Project. 

This helped show the benefits of using horizon scanning to address key risk management challenges. In particular, this included identifying emerging risks and dealing with growing environmental uncertainty.
