Attend Our Last Ask RISSB for 2021
Would you like to know more about RISSB's planned activities for 2021 / 22? Do you have a question about the rolling stock register? Are you interested in applying for the Training Manager position at RISSB? How are we different from other industry bodies? How do I become a RISSB member?
Get your questions about RISSB answered on the spot by two of RISSB’s most senior people - Jesse Baker, General Manager Innovation and Major Projects and Mike Aviet, General Manager Product Delivery - during our last Ask RISSB for 2021.
During the one hour live Q&A session, we’ll talk more about our upcoming priority planning process and how we'll collect your ideas for new Standards, Guidelines, Codes of Practice and Rules as well as what made it onto our 2021 / 22 work plan. Plus, we'll answer your questions.
Join us this coming Tuesday, 12 October at 12PM (AEDT). To secure your spot, just click on the blue 'Register to Attend' button below this story.
If you'd like your burning question answered by our expert team, please submit it in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org 10AM Monday, 11 October 2021. We’ll also take questions during the live event, but submitting them in advance will help us determine what topics you would like us to address before we start.
We work to develop and deliver a suite of products and services which benefit our members and the wider rail community and we rely on industry to help us determine what we should be focusing our efforts on.
If you have an idea for a RISSB Standard, Code of Practice or Guideline, which will benefit the rail community and could be developed for national application, we encourage you to start thinking about how to articulate its:
* Expected impact in supporting interoperability / harmonisation across Australia’s railways
* Potential to improve national safety levels
* Likely financial impacts (e.g. cost reductions) it would deliver
* Environmental benefits.
Next week we will be formally launching our PPP and providing a link to our new priority planning form.
We thank you in advance for your input, the PPP is a very important part of RISSB’s process in making sure that we’re writing the Standards / Codes of Practice / Guidelines that are the highest priority for the rail industry and delivering the most value in reducing costs, improving performance, interoperability, harmonisation and safety.
For more information about the PPP, please attend next week's Ask RISSB.
We're looking for a dynamic and results-driven Training Manager to join our friendly tight-knit team.
If you are looking for a role which requires get up and go to drive development and delivery of high quality training within the rail industry this could be a great role for you. Particularly, if you have an understanding of, and experience in, the training sector and rail industry.
If you or someone you know would like to apply, please do so via Seek. The advertisement can be found here.
Applications close Friday, 15 October 2021.

Horizons Graduates Contribute Safety Critical Information
Over the past four weeks RISSB has been gathering and analysing feedback from a group of Horizons graduates on safety critical information and how it can be better collected, collated, and distributed.
This week the group presented their thoughts, with themes of standardisation and consistency standing out, along with a need for industry to manage ‘information overload’ and use text messaging, heads up displays, and real time notifications sparingly.
RISSB would like to thank the following Horizons graduates for their time and effort in helping shape the soon to be developed Code of Practice for Safety Critical Information.
