Key Learning Objectives
- Demonstrate a sound understanding of the principles of EDSM
- Appreciate risk in the context of the railway, design and safety management
- Describe how design and the safety lifecycle interact and influence each other
- Relate current best practice including latest safety standards EN50126-1/2:2017, EN50129:2018, and EN50128:2011 (Infrastructure), BS EN 50657:2017 (Software for rolling stick), EN50155:2017 (Hardware for Rolling stock), to your own business
- Identify and use relevant standards to aid management of design risk
- Identify hazards, assess risks and understand risk assessment and its approaches
- Discover relevant standards and illustrate how risks in general should be managed
- Describe different approaches to risk acceptance and ALARP and learn to apply the current and developing legislative requirements for rail design risk
- Contribute to a safety plan and communicate safety-related information including hazard logs and other safety records
- Understand the need for a risk-based system engineering lifecycle approach to enable built-in safety, value and performance
- Make decisions which optimise system safety and engineering design requirements in a business context
- Explain the concept of the designer as a ‘rail safety worker’ and its implications
- Use case studies to understand the potential for things to go wrong and develop practical risk management skills
- Understand project management, systems engineering and integration, validation and stakeholder management in the overall rail business context.
About the Course
This online course provides engineers, managers and others involved in Rail safety-related projects with a detailed understanding of the fundamentals of EDSM supported by competency-based structure.
The opening module provides background to EDSM and a brief overview of its application in the railway drawing upon best practice. The following modules introduce a number of EDSM fundamentals and the approach suggested by good practice and standards for putting them into place.
Comprehensive guidance on implementing safe work systems in the railway is provided and all participants will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience of the main techniques involved.
The course content is mapped to:
- The course content is mapped to: – Industry standard competencies, skills and evidence requirements relevant to rail safety work
– Industry regulations
– Australian and international standards
- Information is interspersed with practical exercises. There is a short multiple-choice examination at the end to assess the identified learning outcomes.
Who Should Attend
Any member of staff – decision makers, project managers, line managers, engineers, designers and others – involved with changes to the railway need an understanding of the latest best practice. The course provides a structured and robust approach to managing complex railway projects safely that is aligned with the LATEST CENELEC standard EN50126-1/2:2017, EN50129:2018 and EN50128:2011 and AS4292.2006 for infrastructure, rolling stock, hardware and software.
Participants should have a general understanding of engineering and project management principles and practice.
Nice overview presented. Howard brought a lot of technical experience with him.
