What are data insights?
Good health and safety management relies on good data and analysis. As part of our strategy to exploit the advances in technology and the availability of data RSSB is developing a capability to quickly deliver novel insights.
We are developing the necessary architecture and capability to analyse the data from SMIS, and many other sources to generate novel safety insights which support industry decision making and help provide the direction for risk management activities.
Data Insights Sprints
RSSB are running a series of data insight sprints to analyse key risk areas and support the delivery of Leading Health and Safety on Britain’s Railway (LHSBR). The insight sprints combine knowledge and expertise from across the organisation and apply leading analytical tools and techniques in data science to provide valuable insights to industry.
What benefit will this deliver for the GB rail industry?
Data insights will deliver value by answering questions set by industry. Member involvement enables us to make sure we’re delivering great value and answering the questions that will drive change and have the biggest impact on performance.
