As the world recovers from COVID, the demand to rebuild our people and assets in a resilient and sustainable way has never been more important. Following the recent announcements at COP26, almost 90% of the world’s greenhouse emissions are coming from countries with a pledge to net zero. This is important to the whole rail industry as climate change is predicted to have a real impact on rail and rail safety. Reflecting this, RISSB’s Rail Safety Conference 2022 will address the theme ‘Safety Climate and Climate Safety’. Protecting our people and assets has never been more important and as organisations bring people and climate change to the core of every decision, now is the time to act.

In 2022, we’re offering a two-day reimagined program featuring international and Australian speakers, technical streams focused on industry’s big issues as well as interactive panel discussions, and virtual and in-person attendance options.  Next year’s event will cover topics that are timely and relevant and with a networking dinner, you will have a chance to engage with virtual colleagues face to face.

Hear from senior industry professionals and network with a large community of safety professionals, project managers, engineers and investigators.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Safety culture
  • Mental health and resilience
  • Learnings from COVID
  • Sustainability
  • Climate change
  • Safety and sustainability as risk management
  • The role of people: our workforce, customers, and communities
  • Technology and innovation.
