RISSB's MasterClass Webinar Series Returns In 2021 With A Blockbuster Event
We are pleased to announce that next week we will be launching our 2021 MasterClass webinar series 2 with a free live event featuring The Hon. Jacinta Allan MP - Victorian Minister for Transport Infrastructure and Minister for Suburban Rail Loop.
Victoria’s Big Build is delivering an unprecedented investment with 165 road and rail projects currently underway. This is generating thousands of local jobs for Victorians, in sectors ranging from
construction and engineering to human resources and administration.
The Minister will be speaking about rail safety and standards in an era of strong infrastructure investment, and how these frameworks are critical to ensuring the best outcomes for projects.
We're working on an onboarding member program that will help members tap into the wealth of resources that is available to them and better understand where and how they can save on their next RISSB conference or course.
Starting in March, members will be offered access to an exclusive RISSB orientation session where they will learn how to get the most out of RISSB
During the information session, members will:
* Get an insider's guide to RISSB
* Learn how and where to access all 220 RISSB publications on RISSB's website
* Find out what discounts they are entitled to
* Engage with senior managers.
More information about this monthly session will be shared over the coming weeks.
Sharing Investigations 4 Proves Popular
Around 30 people from across industry attended the fourth Sharing Investigations Forum this week. With detailed presentations from three rail organisations on incidents and learnings, along with input from both ATSB and ONRSR, the forum continues to be popular with industry as it highlights common issues in incidents and provides industry with insights and learnings.
Human Factors A
The Human Factors Managers Group met this week and discussed a range of initiatives, including a possible HF requirements document, HF initiatives from key rail organisations, the RISSB OCWHaS (safety culture toolkit for the rail industry) and HF ideas for RISSB Major Projects in 2021 / 22.
A highlight of the meeting was a presentation by UK Human Factors expert, Huw Gibson from RSSB (UK).
