National Track Safety Induction (NTSI) Course
This industry developed national course has been converted to an online format and RISSB has been discussing its introduction into the rail industry. Several major rail organisations plan to adopt the course in coming months.
Deadline for ARI Award Entries Extended
The deadline for nominations for the Australasian Railway Industry (ARI) Awards has been extended. You now have until COB Monday, 5 July to get your Safety Award entry in.
This year's ARI Safety Award is supported by RISSB, so we're encouraging you to get behind it and us and submit an entry.
Safety in rail is paramount and the industry prides itself on its strong safety record. Companies across Australia and New Zealand are implementing world class safety strategies and developing new technologies to ensure rail operations are safe and reliable.
The Safety Award (RISSB) aims to recognise this important work and promote rail's efforts to remain
efficient, effective and safe as possible.
We have assembled an impressive judging panel and can't wait to read your entries.
This week we attended the CORE Conference in Perth. CORE provided the perfect opportunity to catch up with our good friends at ACRI, as well as WA-based members and partners who visited our stand just to say hi or ask some really tough questions. We enjoyed meeting all of you and hearing how you apply our Standards in your business.
Since the program's inception, Horizons Program participants have been creating FastTrack newsletters focused on showcasing the best in technology and innovation from around the globe.
You can check out newsletters from Horizons' 1, 2 and 3 on RISSB's Grand Central page . Just look for the 'Helpful Resources' area.
