The rail health and safety strategy - ‘Leading Health and Safety on Britain's Railway – A strategy for working together’ addresses the challenge the industry currently faces in making the next big step change in managing health and safety on GB rail network. GB rail companies have adopted a proactive approach to safety management over the last 20 years and this has delivered significant performance improvement meaning our railway system is the safest in Europe. However, this performance has plateaued and it is recognised that a number of areas of health and safety have the potential for considerable improvement. By bringing the industry together and providing the framework and focus to enable the industry to deliver the improvements needed. The strategy sets out 12 risk priorities and also 9 areas of underlying safety management capabilities, which will be targeted for cross-industry collaborative improvement over the next 10 years.
