RISSB's Rail Safety Conference
31 March - 1 April 2020 Agenda Launch
RISBB would like to invite you to attend RISSB’s Rail Safety Conference 2020 at Aerial UTS Function Centre in Sydney.
Themed How Safe is Safe Enough, you will hear from close to 40 senior safety professionals from Australia and overseas and have the opportunity to network with a large community of safety professionals, project managers, engineers and investigators.
Delve into some of the challenges currently facing the rail industry.
AS 7658 - Railway Infrastructure: Railway Level Crossings
The Development Group met this week to begin reviewing the public feedback that was received during the public consultation period. Over 400 comments were received which is very encouraging – it shows how engaged the rail industry is when it comes to level crossings! A further review meeting will be held in March.
AS 7664 Railway Signalling Cable Routes, Cable Pit and Foundations
The Development Group meeting was held last week. A range of areas were discussed and several updates have been recommended. The Development Group will reconvene at the end of the month to continue work on this Standard.
Rail Cyber Security in Rolling Stock & Train Control Code of Practice
These documents are currently in the public consultation phase which is due to conclude on the 24th of February. This project initially started out as two separate Codes of Practice ( Rolling Stock & Train Control), however, mainly due to a large volume of overlapping content, they have been merged into a single Code of Practice. An additional benefit of this merge is that the two Development Groups have now merged providing us with a huge pool of talent to work with!
A third Sharing Investigations Forum will be held in Sydney at John Holland on Monday, 30 March 2020. These very popular forums are by invitation only and include presentations from rail organisations on specific incidents and workshopping lessons for industry. Participants should be investigators or similar in your organisation.
From a Chair and Industry Networking Breakfast and a Horizons 2.0 Forum to a Rail Safety Conference and a Sharing Investigations Forum, RISSB will have something for everyone in the first week of April.
Stay tuned for some upcoming announcements including details of our next Chair and Industry Networking Breakfast to be held in Sydney on Friday, 3 April 2020.
TRAINING AND EVENTS
Derailment Investigation and Analysis Workshop 16-18 March 2020
Every week we'll be introducing our new Horizons 2 participants to you. This week say hello to Chelsea Winskill, Ronnie Zammarand Sean Hou.
I’m Chelsea Winskill, a Data Analyst at ONRSR.
My role involves making sense of the data we collect, and reporting risk-based insights to inform regulatory efforts and industry communications.
Being relatively new to rail and working for the regulator, I joined the Horizon’s program because I wanted to better understand industry and it’s perspectives.
Outside of work, I spend a lot of time playing
with Lego, kicking a soccer ball and running my 6-year old around to sport. I can also be found studying (Applied Statistics) or sleeping.
My name is Ronnie Zammar and I work as a Project Engineer for Arc Infrastructure.
I work within our Projects division and provide Project Engineering services to track and civil major works projects across Arc’s WA freight network.
I was attracted to the RISSB Horizons course due to the networking and learning opportunities that it would present as I believe these will help me as I progress in the rail industry throughout my career.
Hi all, I’m Sean Hou, and I work for Aurecon as a graduate rail engineer, based in Sydney.
I’ve been working on Overhead Wiring Design across a few projects, while at the same time enjoying working on what I’m most passionate about – rail!
I joined the Horizons Program as it gives me the opportunity to challenge myself and contribute ideas to improve public transport systems. Additionally, networking with other professionals from many sub-disciplines and career paths will allow me to gain a broader view of the rail industry.
In the future, I would like to be more involved in the digital side of rail – including predictive maintenance and digital simulation.
