Key Learning Objectives
- Demonstrate a sound understanding of the principles and language of EDSM.
- Appreciate risk in the context of railway design and safety management
- Describe how design and the safety lifecycle interact and influence each other
- Appreciate how current best practice in safety standards (particularly the latest EN50126) pull the topic together
- Understand the need for a risk-based system engineering lifecycle approach to enable built-in safety, value and performance
- Understand how to review case studies to understand the potential for things to go wrong on the railway
- Understand the complexity of railway accidents
- Help understanding of practical risk management skills
- Discover relevant standards and illustrate how risks in general should be managed
- Relate current best practice including safety standards such as EN50126 Identify hazards, assess risks and understand risk assessment and its approaches
- demonstration of SFAIRP and compliance
- A detailed look at the SFAIRP principle and other Risk Acceptance criteria from around the world including compliance with standards, comparable systems and formal risk assessment
- Understand safety – management systems, organisation issues, acceptance/approval process
- Identify and mitigate Security issues from Cyber Threats
- Understand how safety and reliability interact
- Relate to the complexities of Railway systems engineering and integration
- Appreciate the railway context now and in the new Digital railway
About the Course
- This 3-day course provides engineers, managers and others involved in safety-related projects with a detailed understanding of the fundamentals of EDSM supported by a 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 next 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:
o Industry standard competencies, skills and evidence requirements relevant to rail safety work (see our website for details)
o Industry regulations
o National 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 enroll?
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.
Level: Fundamental Recommended Pre-requisites
Participants should have a general understanding of engineering and project management principles and practice.
