Risk assessment guidance

​​​​​​RSSB produces guidance and tools to help the industry manage risk.

Taking Safe Decisions sets out key principles and a decision-making framework, supported by examples.  Interactive analysis and scoping tools are available from the Rail Risk Portal.

The Management of Change web pages provide guidance on the safe management of technical, operational and organisational change, including practical advice for applying the Common Safety Method on Risk Evaluation and Assessment.

RSSB has also produced a guidance document for transport operators on how to prepare and maintain risk assessments covering their operations,​ covering the use of data from the Safety Risk Model. This document does not fully reflect current legislation on risk assessment and will be updated in due course.
