Informa Interview – Kevin Taylor on thinking outside the square on rail safety

6 Dec 2010, by Informa Australia


We had the opportunity to interview Kevin Taylor, General Manager of the Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) who will be speaking at the 11th Annual Rail Safety 2011 conference on the 23rd and 24th of March 2011 in Sydney.

1. The theme for RISSB’s Rail Safety 2011 is ‘Thinking outside the square’. How is this theme reflected in the 2011 conference program?
2. Although rail is one of the safest modes of transport, what do you see as the greatest challenges and priorities to improving the industry’s safety performance?
3. What role does technology play in reducing incidents?
4. In addition to the two-day conference program, Rail Safety 2011 includes a pre-conference workshop on SFAIRP and the ever-popular Rail Safety Dinner. In the mix of information and networking sessions available, what do you hope attendees will take away from the event?
