Horizons 4.0 To Meet In Brisbane
Nearly 120 participants on the H4.0 Program will meet for two days (25th /26th May) at QUT in Brisbane. The program includes presentations from industry leaders, a workshop on rail and the sustainability agenda, nine technical sessions covering technology and innovation, a panel delving into digital innovation, a presentation from the RTSA, RTAA and PWI, participant presentations on the “Sustainability Challenge” and a workshop on social licence.
This 3-day workshop provides participants with an understanding of the principles, methods and requirements for investigating derailments.
Attend to learn about:
* Theories of derailment
* Regulatory requirements
* Derailment report submissions
* The true cost of derailments to an organisation
* Infrastructure derailment triggers
* Operations derailment triggers
* How human factors contributes to derailments
* Wheel rail interface issues
* Turnout and yard derailments.
The aim of this 4 day course is to teach attendees how to conduct and document any investigation into a railway safety incident. It builds on industry best practice and promotes a just culture approach for investigations. Attendees will learn about:
* Regulatory requirements for rail safety investigations
* Causes of rail safety incidents
* Rail safety investigation types
* Planning the investigation
* Categories of evidence.
These courses are perfect for new staff who will be working in the rail corridor particularly on or near rail tracks. The courses are offered 24/7 enabling new employees the ability to access courses from any computer at a time convenient to them.
The Suburban Rail Loop's Chief Executive Officer, Frankie Carroll, is joining us next Tuesday as our eighth MasterClass webinar presenter for the year.
Attend the webinar if you want to hear an industry leader talk about a once-in-a-generation opportunity to shape the future liveability, productivity and connectivity of Melbourne.
Find out what’s coming up in 2022, hear about the delivery of Plan Melbourne’s vision of a polycentric city structure and the transport and connectivity benefits of the project (SRL East and SRL North), and how SRL East, the first section of the loop, which runs from Cheltenham to Box Hill, will value add as a legacy project for Victorians.
David Radcliffe (Strategic Adviser) and Tim Canterford (Deputy Director, Delivery) will be joining the presentation to do a deep dive into the technical detail of SRL East, including an overview of the Tunnel Boring Machines.
The webinar will start at 12PM (AEST) Tuesday, 24 May 2022.
Would you like to know more about
RISSB's 2022/23 work plan? Do you have a question about our rolling stock register? Do you know that we are releasing a sustainability study at the end of June?
Our next live Q & A Session - Ask RISSB - will be held on Wednesday, 25 May 2022.
During our Wednesday session, we'll be giving you a preview of what will be including in the coming financial year's work plan, including what Standards we'll be developing in 2022/23 and what sustainability research projects and industry tools we are releasing in the second half of the year.
Plus, we'll introduce you to more of the RISSB team and we'll answer your burning questions about RISSB's products and services.
In a major initiative for H4.0, optional site visits have been offered in Melbourne (six options including the MTM Driving Simulator, Downer HCMT maintenance facility, Yarra Trams Preston Depot, Deakin Uni VR, V/Line
asset management and Melbourne Metro).
In Brisbane, there are six site visits on offer with around 60 people attending. The visits are to Aurizon (operations), QR (rollingstock maintenance and operations), Cross River Rail and QUT’s National Battery Testing Centre.
Many thanks to the various organisations who have hosted these site visits – we know they take a lot of organising and resources – the feedback has been fantastic.
