Call for Development Group Members – Safety Critical Communications

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a Development Group to develop a new product for Safety Critical Communications.

Safety Critical Communications play a key role in the safe operation and maintenance of the Australian Railway Network. This product will focus on establishing and defining the common terminology and phrases relevant to safety critical communications within the Australian rail industry and complement the existing RISSB Guideline and National Communications Rule.

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 4 meetings held between November 2020 and April 2021. These will be planned as teleconferences, however this may change depending on lifting of travel restrictions.

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