Harmonising Safety Critical Information Systems
Last week RISSB met with senior representatives of many rail transport organisations to discuss the gathering, collation, and distribution of safety critical information. Currently RTOs around Australia use different methods and systems to gather and transmit safety critical information to train crews, network control officers and other rail safety workers. RISSB, in partnership with industry, is looking at ways to harmonise safety critical information systems to ensure that information is received and understood by those who need it the most.
Watch this space for further developments in the coming months.
AS 7739 Digital Engineering Update
The Development Group met this week to further discuss the scope and objective of this new Standard, and to close out some comments made on the initial draft. Over 30 people attended, with a vigorous discussion held around the boundaries of the Standard, and where those boundaries should lie. Digital Engineering has the ability to transform the entire asset lifecycle so reaching an agreement on how far the Standard should go is hotly debated!
AS 7636 Railway Structures Update
The revision of this Standard has been completed and is now available for public comment. With new sections on CWR on bridges, new drawings, and updated tables this Standard will provide greater guidance to the railway industry on the design, construction, and maintenance of railway structures such as bridges, culverts, and other key infrastructure items.
RISSB Celebrates Its Inaugural Year of Major Projects
RISSB has traditionally worked on, and is best known for, writing rail industry Standards, Codes of Practice and Guidelines. However, in 2020 , we added a new aspect to our work plan – that of major projects. RISSB’s Major Projects Portfolio targets problem areas for the rail industry not easily addressed by Standards, Codes of Practice and Guidelines.
