+ CEO message + RISSB Rail Human Factors Forum +Come and see us at AusRAIL Plus 2023 +People Spotlight for RISSB's 20th Anniversary
I was great to see the joint announcement yesterday from Federal Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Minister Catherine King and South Australian Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Tom Koutsantonis, regarding the appointment of Dr Natalie Pelham to the role of Chief Executive of the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator (ONRSR).
I congratulate Natalie on her appointment, and RISSB looks forward to continuing working with her in her new role at ONRSR, as we have been with her and her team at the Office of Transport Safety Investigations (OTSI).
The Australian rail industry’s co-regulatory environment continues to be one that fosters collaboration and innovation, and we’re entering an exciting new phase with an increasing emphasis by industry and governments on improving interoperability and harmonisation.
RISSB looks forward to continuing to partner with industry to maximise the opportunities that co-regulation provides, and to continue working closely with ONRSR and Dr Pelham to drive safer, more productive and more sustainable outcomes for the industry.

PEOPLE SPOTLIGHT ON... RISSB's key contributors over the last 20 years
This year, RISSB is celebrating it's 20th year Anniversary! Our organisation was established in June 2003 as the 'Code Management Company', then from 2007 onwards, we were formally known as the Rail Industry Safety Standards Board (RISSB).
For the last 20 years, RISSB has been supported by, and worked with, some incredible people that have contributed greatly to our business. For the next few months, we will be recognising some of RISSB's key contributors, as they share their experiences working with RISSB.
Executive Director Safety, Environment, Quality & Risk, Sydney Trains
"It's great to have RISSB as our rail industry standards partner - producing Standards, Codes of Practice and Guidelines many from which have come from the committees and working groups that Sydney Trains has had the pleasure of being involved in.
RISSB has been very active in bringing industry together in a unified manner to navigate and thrive in a co-regulatory, and outcomes-based environment, and has really evolved into being more than what the name on the tin suggests!
