Safety is everyone’s concern. In an age of digitalisation change is a constant and with changing technology comes the need and opportunity to apply dynamic responses to safety solutions. This was what we took away from RISSB’s highly successful Rail Safety 2018 – which received the highest turn-out in recent memory with over 180 attendees.

On the back of this strong foundation, 2019 will be looking to the future. RISSB Rail Safety 2019 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.
