Australian Rail Risk Model Enhancements Are Coming
Capturing data for reports and querying precursors will soon be easier in the Australian Rail Risk Model (ARRM).
We’re enhancing ARRM to give our users better insights and understanding of their business safety risk profile in three ways:
1. Improved data visualisation capability
- Graphical export of the queries will complement downloadable csv files, allowing the information to be easily addended to reports as supporting evidence.
2. New queries will be available - We’re flipping the script on precursors! In a similar way that the hazardous event trees can be interrogated, you can now start building an ARRM query from precursor events. This will ensure you’re not missing precursors during your analysis and make the process of running a query much quicker.
3. Maintaining integrity of the model - Organisations will now be notified when a staff member registers for ARRM or resets their
password, ensuring that data within the model is protected and is being accessed by people with the right permission.
RISSB’s Standing Committees discuss significant industry issues to assist in the development of Australian Standards, Codes of Practice, Guidelines and Rules. The Infrastructure Standing Committee (ISC) met last week to discuss a range of topics, including project updates, the 2022/23 RISSB work plan, change requests submitted by industry, and the current progress within aspects of RISSB's Major Projects portfolio. The meeting also gave the current RISSB representative and Standards Development Manager (SDM), Sudha Niles, an opportunity to hand over to fellow SDM Cris Fitzhardinge, who will assist the ISC going forward.
First Investigate Rail Safety Incidents Course In Perth
Our first face to face ‘Investigate Rail Safety Incidents’ course for 2022 was held earlier this week in Perth. The course attracted participants from Perth and beyond, providing a great opportunity for all attendees to learn from each other.
A big thank you to Fortescue Metals for hosting us at their Bassendean training rooms.
More courses are being planned around the country and further course dates will be released on RISSB's Face to Face Courses website page.
