An ambitious project to create a fully integrated risk management framework for light rail has been put under the spotlight in a leading trade publication.
Developed by the Light Rail Safety and Standards Board, the framework incorporates a series of interconnected projects and is already making a significant contribution to safety across the sector.
The feature in the most recent issue of Tramways and Urban Transit is now available to view online here and provides a comprehensive account of the LRSSB’s work to date on an initiative that encompasses all aspects of incident reporting, risk modelling and the development of best practice.
Written by Carl Williams, Chief Executive of the LRSSB, it also outlines how the project draws on the experience of safety professionals and is supported by specialist consultants and external agencies, including the Office of Rail and Road (ORR).
“We would like to thank the magazine for giving us the opportunity to explain how the framework is helping drive light rail safety and how it is incorporating existing methods of risk management and mitigation to develop a cross-sector approach to risk management and mitigation,” Mr Williams said.
