All Aboard For A Tour De RISSB On 13 August 2021
Want to know how to help us develop a Standard? Do you know what projects we have in our pipeline?
Next week, RISSB is holding its monthly onboarding session for employees of RISSB member organisations - All Aboard otherwise known as the Tour de RISSB - to help organisations get maximum value from their RISSB membership.
We'll be taking attendees on a walkthrough of our site and introducing the full suite of tools (Australian Standards and other industry leading publications) available to download and use during a live webinar at 12pm (AEST) on Friday, 13 August.
Facilitated by Jesse Baker (RISSB’s General Manager Innovation and Major Projects) and Phil Allan (General Manager Strategy and Stakeholder Relations) the
walkthroughs (including Q & As) usually last for 20 minutes and are held once per month, with plenty of time for you to ask, and for RISSB to answer, any questions you or your team may have.

Horizons Program 3.0 Comes Up With Brilliant Ideas
The H3.0 Program participants excelled this week with 10 groups presenting their new ideas for rail.
The ideas covered an enormous range of topics including a proposed national forum, automated risk registers (both near and dear to RISSB’s role), applications of AI, robotics, solar power for rail, an app for freight logistics, a proposal to combine commuting with exercising, ways of reducing overhead wiring issues, continuous connectivity for passengers and UV cleaning robots on public transport.
MasterClass Webinar Duratrack Sleepers Tuesday, 10 August 2021
Integrated Recycling's General Manager, Stephen Webster, will be talking about the circular economy and how his company's innovative Duratrack sleepers recently received type approval from
V/Line and Metro Trains Melbourne following in-track trials, and how the sleepers can help meet targets set by each government for the use of recycled products.
Stephen will also highlight the collaboration with the Institute of Railway
Technology, Monash University, the Victorian Government and accredited rail
operators in bringing about this innovation.
The webinar will be held at 12PM (AEST) Tuesday, 10 August 2021.

RISSB is reaching out to rail companies to outline its training program options that will be available in coming weeks. A number of companies have approached RISSB to discuss what is available – ranging from online short, professional development courses to longer accredited
courses RISSB has offered for some years through registered training organisations. The longer courses are being converted to blended courses and will be available in two formats (blended and face to face).
