Safety is everyone’s concern, and it is through collaboration that we will achieve it. This was what we took away from RISSB’s highly successful Rail Safety 2017 – which received the highest turn-out in recent memory with over 150 attendees. On the back of this strong foundation, 2018 will be looking to the future.
In an age of digitalisation and disruption, change is a constant. As historic risks are mitigated through automation and innovation, the application of new technologies brings previously unforeseen risks to light. These risks are often compounded by an increasing demand for technological literacy across all systems, and solutions that require dynamic responses.
RISSB Rail Safety 2018 will be the industry gathering for the latest in safety updates. Attendees will hear from experts and safety professionals from across the Australian and international rail sectors in a comprehensive 2-day conference featuring case studies, best practice insights and innovative risk management strategies.

“Power by the hour” deals have long been used in aviation, due to their perceived financial attractiveness.

Mixed signals: SPAD-risk management and mitigation from the Network Controller perspective
