Message from the chair
The Leading Health and Safety on Britain’s Rail strategy sets out a clear direction for health and safety management, focusing on risk initiatives that can reduce overall harm. SSRG supports the specialist safety risk groups that monitor the risks and capabilities set out in the strategy. We monitor and review the strategy, reflecting on industry progress, building on the work of the risk groups, and ensuring industry collaboration continues to mature.
