The review of AS 7505 Signalling Detection Interface kicked off last week with a great turn out by the Development Group. The group is due to meet again in the new year to continue its content discussions.
AS 7702 Rail Equipment
Type Approval Update
The Development Group met in early December to discuss potential amendments to this timely Standard. Significant progress was made on the review with follow up meetings scheduled in the new year.
Bio-Mathematical Models To Manage Fatigue And Monitoring Hours of Work Guidelines Update
Work on these two Guidelines commenced in December with kick off meetings held for both Development Groups. The subject matter attracted strong interest and both group meetings were well attended. We're looking forward to continuing our earnest discussions in the new year.
This week RISSB employees from around the country converged on Brisbane for the ARA's AusRAIL conference and exhibition.
At AusRAIL exhibition stand 77-78, we were overwhelmed by the number of visitors we had and the quality of the questions on our current and future work plan, the work plan submission process, the national rolling stock register, membership and training. Thank you to those of you who took the time to stop and say hello.
In addition to meeting people at the RISSB stand and attending conference plenary sessions, RISSB CEO Damien White took to the exhibition theatre stage to talk about barriers to improved safety and productivity and Jesse Baker participated in a panel discussion on priority rail safety issues.
Congratulations to the ARA for putting on another successful event.
