Safety


Purpose

  • To provide strategic advice to the RISSB Board on significant rail industry safety issues which have been identified as potential RISSB projects by others (e.g. SMG)

Terms of Reference

  • Provide strategic advice to the RISSB Board on issues relevant to rail safety;
  • Propose the development of new standards, codes, rules and guidelines or changes to existing documents;

  • Monitor progress of development activity by Project Teams and advise the RISSB Board as necessary;
  • Review consultation comments and the Project Team’s responses to them;

  • Co-ordinate industry responses;
  • Establish priorities and oversee the review and continuous improvement programme for safety; and
  • Liaise with other Standing Committees for interface issues when required.
