Call for Development Group Members – Achieving a Positive Safety Culture in the Rail Corridor Guideline

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a Development Group to produce a new Guideline called Achieving a Positive Safety Culture in the Rail Corridor.

Investigations regularly cite the lack of a positive safety culture as a contributing factor to occurrences in the rail corridor. So, the objective of this work is to incrementally improve the safety of workers by addressing this. Note that there are other RISSB projects, and other industry efforts that focus on other factors.

How to contribute
Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join this Development Group to contribute to the overall depth and quality of the product.

Development Group membership is voluntary and requires the support of your organisation to attend and contribute. There will be up to 4 virtual meetings held between January 2021 and April 2021.

Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB website.

All nominations and enquiries are to be submitted to jbaker@rissb.com.au.

As part of your nomination, can you please provide a brief detailing your contact details, your interest in this development (materially affected party, subject matter expert, etc.), and any other information which might support your participation.

Your information will assist us in ensuring a balanced representation from all major interest categories in the development of this publication.

The closing date for nominations is Friday, 15 January 2021.
