SAFETY

Our team of safety professionals has been managing risk for railway industry clients – from rolling stock manufacturers to train operators and sub-system suppliers to infrastructure managers – for over 20 years.

Risk Evaluation and Assessment

The Common Safety Method for Risk Evaluation and Assessment (EU Commission Regulation 402/2013) requires that all changes to the railway system, including the introduction of new or modified rolling stock or infrastructure systems, or changes to routes or operations, should be assessed to ensure that they do not import unacceptable risk to the railway. Where a change is deemed significant, a structured risk assessment and mitigation process is mandated to ensure that residual risk is reduced ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’. If the change is deemed significant, an Assessment Body must be appointed to confirm that the correct process has been followed and that the results are suitable.

RAMS, software and EMC expertise

Our team of experienced safety engineering professionals, including RAMS, software and EMC experts can assess the change and develop robust safety arguments to demonstrate its acceptability. They can provide a staged approach to safety assessment in design, testing and service to ensure safety from project inception to implementation and operation.
