National Track Worker Safety Forum July 2021
RISSB will be hosting a National Track Worker Safety Forum next month as part of its ongoing commitment to supporting track worker safety, and facilitating critical incident and accident knowledge sharing between operators.
Earlier this year, RISSB, in collaboration with the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator and the Australian Centre for Rail Innovation, released the Track Worker Safety Options Report.
This forum will provide industry with the opportunity to discuss the report, share ideas and experiences on track worker safety, and help RISSB identify areas that it should focus on in the future.
Should you wish to attend the forum, please contact Mike Aviet, General Manager Product Delivery by clickingthis link.
Human Factors Managers Group To Meet
The Human Factors Managers Group (HFMG) will meet virtually on 23rd July. Discussions will centre around a number of HF projects and the RISSB Culture Hub Survey.
The HFMG, chaired by Dr Kate Branford from V/Line continues to grow with representatives from Aurizon, Pacific National, KDR Adelaide, DoT Victoria, TfNSW, Sydney Trains, MTM, QR, TasRAIL, Torrens Connect, PTAWA, 1Rail Australia, Fortescue and V/Line.
RISSB At CORE
RISSB will be at next week's CORE conference in Perth. Come and visit stand 39 and meet Mike Aviet, General Manager Product Delivery and Sudha Niles and Ian Routcliffe who are two of our extraordinary Standards Development Managers.
Get your questions about the benefits of RISSB membership, our technical advisory services and what Standards we have in our catalogue answered on the spot.
Train Whistles Industry Discussion Paper Available Online
In March, RISSB delivered a webinar highlighting some of the key challenges facing industry and the community about train whistle noise, and recommended options for industry to manage this issue.
The paper titled Train Whistles - Understanding The Risks And Opportunities To All Stakeholders is available on Grand Central.
If you would like to download a copy, please go to RISSB's Grand Central Resources page here and just look for the 'Helpful Resources' area.
The H3.0 Program continues with a virtual forum on Monday, 28 June. The one day program includes a conversation with Tony Braxton-Smith CEO, DIT (SA), a risk workshop with Steve Bickley (Abbott Risk Consulting), a Human Factors presentation by Dr Kate Branford (V/Line) and a
workshop with futurist Steve Sammartino. The program of the final three day face-to-face H3.0 forum in Sydney on 3 and 4 August, is well advanced.
Horizons Graduates Star As Session Chairs
A number of graduates of RISSB’s Horizons 1.0 and Horizons 2.0 Programs chaired streams at the recent RISSB Safety Conference. They were fantastic and we will be continuing this at the Technology and Innovation Conference coming up in Melbourne on 10th and 11th August, with six Horizons graduates chairing streams again.
A big thank you to Nathan Hines (Sydney Trains), Sue Rose (DoT Victoria), Chelsea Winskill (ONRSR), Andrew Barry (Sydney Trains), Kenelm Wong (TfNSW) and Oliver Lake (Sydney Trains) for a great job in Sydney.
The photo taken at the Safety Conference shows all but Chelsea.
