    Asset Integrity Group

    The Asset Integrity Group (AIG) oversees the development of the infrastructure and rolling stock asset integrity areas of the industry’s safety strategy ‘Leading Health and Safety on Britain’s Railway’ (LHSBR).

    Scope

    AIG is the cross-industry group dedicated to leading collaborative activity on the topic of infrastructure and rolling stock asset integrity. It does this by: 

    • Setting strategy, standards, providing leadership and co-ordination
    • Enabling consistent understanding of safety requirements
    • Collaborating to learn about emergent hazards and risks
    • Enabling consistent assurance for supply chain and contractors
    • Evening out then enhancing safety assurance and competencies
    • Responding to rail re-organisation (structures, devolution, nationalisation)
    • Through data analysis, measuring what goes wrong, understanding why, and identifying corrective actions.

    Message from the chair

    AIG is a cross-industry group which collaborates on the understanding of risks arising from the integrity of rail assets, including both infrastructure and rolling stock. 

    AIG’s work is focussed in particular on the integrity of assets which impact multiple rail companies and where supply chains are complex.

    AIG seeks to promote learning and enhance capability across the whole lifecycle of the rail asset base and in particular to champion the concept of ‘safety by design’. 

    Task & Finish Groups

    The Asset Integrity Group has established four Task & Finish (T&F) Groups to support and oversee relevant projects on the AIG Roadmap.  The four groups (and their respective Chairs) are listed below:

    • Knowledge Management (chaired by Steve Enright)
