What we do

Safety Risk Model ImageAt RSSB we’re here to support the rail industry to make the GB rail network the safest in Europe. The Rail Risk Portal is a platform for accessing outputs from RSSB’s work to help those operating the railway understand and manage safety risk.

These outputs include: results from our modelling of risk; analysis of safety data we have collected; and tools we have developed to support understanding of risk and inform decision making.

What is on this site

The Rail Risk Portal contains the following tools and information:

The information and supporting tools have been developed to enable our members in the GB rail industry to benchmark their performance and support them in formulating their own safety policies, plans and measures.

  • Annual Safety Performance Report

    The ASPR is to contains safety intelligence and risk information. It is published annually.

    Visit
  • Precursor Indicator Model

    The Precursor Indicator Model measures the underlying risk from train accidents by tracking changes in accident precursors

    Visit
  • Safety Risk Model - Overview

    The Safety Risk Model (SRM) models the safety risk of the GB mainline railway.

    Visit
  • Safety Risk Model - Risk Profile Bulletin

    The Safety Risk Model - Risk Profile Bulletin (SRM-RPB) contains risk information and risk profiles derived from the Safety Risk Model.

  • Definitions Dictionary

    The Definitions Dictionary has been developed to provide users with definitions for terms used within the Rail Risk Portal and the tools available on it

  • Fixed Lineside Assessment Tool

    FLAT is intended to assist users in deciding whether to provide, renew, retain or remove lineside telephony at a specific location.

  • Geo-referenced Safety Risk Model

    The GeoSRM provides localised risk estimates by taking into consideration local features. Access is only to support the research project T972.

  • Platform Aerodynamic Risk Assessment Tool

    The Platform Aerodynamic Assessment Tool assists users in carrying out a platform aerodynamic risk assessment.

  • Red Aspect Approaches to Signals (RAATS)

    This tool is for RSSB members only. It is currently a beta version undergoing verification and trial with selected users. Please contact Chris Harrison (chris.harrison@rssb.co.uk) for further information.

  • Safety Risk Model - Risk Profile Tool

    When used in conjunction with RSSB document - Guidance on the preparation and use of company risk assessment profiles for transport operators, the SRM-RPT allows transport operators to develop a risk profile for the their operation.

  • Signals Passed at Danger

    The SPAD Risk Ranking Tool gives a measure of the level of risk associated with each SPAD that occurs, and as such enables the industrys performance to be measured in terms of a percentage reduction year on year

  • Taking Safe Decisions & Taking Safe Decisions Analysis Tool

    Taking Safe Decisions sets out the industry consensus view of how safety is taken into account when taking decisions. Taking safe decisions documents can be found on the main RSSB website. The analysis tool is available to RSSB members through the Rail-Risk-Portal.
