Learning lessons

Organisations must learn from accidents and incidents, ill-health data, errors and relevant experience, including learnings from other organisations, and take actions on lessons learned. There are plenty of industry resources available to support organisations in learning from operational experience.

Statistics show that Britain’s railways are among the safest in the world. One of the ways RSSB helps the industry push for improvement is by monitoring the learning that comes from near misses and accidents, both here and across the globe. This is known more generically as Learning from Operational Experience (LOE).
