What is the Risk Profile Bulletin
The SRM-RPB is supported by a range of tools and spreadsheets to help users customise the SRM output to support their particular needs which might include the Safety Risk Model - Risk Profile Bulletin (SRM-RPB) contains risk information and risk profiles derived from the Safety Risk Model.
The SRM-RPB is available to download as both an Adobe Acrobat file and MS Excel spreadsheets. The main body of the SRM-RPB sets out:
- The objective of the Safety Risk Model
- System boundaries - what the SRM-RPB covers and doesn't cover
- Changes from previous versions of the SRM-RPB
- The total risk results for the GB Mainline Railway
- Overall risk profiles
- Details of the HLOS requirements - Passenger and staff safety metrics
- Detailed risk profiles by accident and person types
This this is supported by a suite of tables in the appendices which contain:
- The frequency, consequence and risk estimates for each hazardous event
- The frequency and risk contributions for all precursors leading to each hazardous event
- A breakdown of risk into key risk areas and selected risk groupings
- Details of any key assumptions used in calculating individual risk along with a summary of the calculations for each person type
- Details of the modeling approach implemented in that version of the SRM
- A list of all the assumptions and definitions related to the analysis
Why Should I use it?
The SRM-RPB is supported by a range of tools and spreadsheets to help users customise the SRM output to support their particular needs which might include:
Local decisions by transport operatorsRevision of Group StandardsPrioritising areas for research on the railway.Identification and prioritisation of issues for monitoring and auditDeveloping priorities for the Strategic Safety Plan (SSP).
- As Low as Reasonable Practicable (ALARP) assessments and wider business cost benefit analyses of potential or changed control measures. Such assessments and analyses might relate to industry wide investment decisions:
The risk estimates presented can be used to support particular risk assessments and for judging how the risk relating to particular operations compares with and contributes to the system-wide risk.
