    Leading Health and Safety on Britain's Railways Editorial Board

    The LHSBR EB advises RSSB on how to engage with operational rail staff about the safety risks associated with their roles. The basis for this work is Leading Health and Safety on Britain’s Railway, the industry’s strategy that sets out key activities aimed at developing a safer and healthier railway.

    Scope

    The LHSBR communications products focus on promoting good practice and learning from:

    • Accidents, incidents, precursors and unplanned events on the national rail network due to any cause (excluding public behaviour at level crossings): human error, equipment failure, environment, vandalism, and any other risks in the scope of the strategy
    • Train accident risk in yards, depots and sidings
    • Workforce risk from accidents occurring on the running line: slips, trips and falls; contact with objects; and being struck by trains
    • Health, safety and risk issues in stations and on platforms, including at the platform-train interface
    • Major international rail events

    The format of LHSBR communications products must be accessible to the end audience, to ensure maximum impact. As such, the products:

    • Use storytelling as a way of communicating complicated concepts clearly
    • Use language that the target audience of front line operational staff appreciate and understand
    • Are produced using media (film, magazine, web) that are easily accessible.

    Message from the chair

    Though the figures confirm rail’s good safety record, we must keep telling the safety and health story, so that this encouraging trend continues. LHSBR EB helps by managing the content and production of RED and Right Track for all ops staff across the network. We look at emerging risk trends and key incidents to share lessons learnt for drivers, dispatchers, guards, shunters, signallers, track maintainers – the whole railway family in fact.
