Name - Paul Appleton - Office Rail
We aim to make sure that:
- Dutyholders protect the health, safety and welfare of
passengers, railway employees and members of the public who may be
exposed to risks from the railway.
- The rail industry achieves excellence in health and safety
culture and risk control.
Our health and safety vision is for zero workforce and
industry-caused passenger fatalities, with an ever-decreasing
overall safety risk.
We aim to ensure that the rail industry manages risks
adequately, and continuously improves its health and safety
performance as far as is reasonably practicable.
Informed through regular audits and inspections, the
investigations of incidents and complaints, we are able to take an
efficient risk-based approach to regulation.
Our regulatory approach includes:
- Using our newly-developed railway management maturity model
which helps to identify how well duty holders are meeting the
requirements of their safety-management systems;
- Structured inspection and targeted audit to highlight best
practice and areas for improvement, and inform the railway
management maturity model;
- Monitoring health and safety performance indicators, including
the assessments undertaken by other bodies, such as the Rail Safety
and Standards Board (RSSB) and the Rail Accident Investigation
Branch (RAIB) to identify areas of greatest risk and ensure action
- Providing industry advice and guidance to help duty holders
comply with the law;
- Using our powers and influence to help the industry tackle
common issues such as competence, supervision, managing change and
safety awareness; and
Using appropriate enforcement to:
- make sure duty holders take immediate action to deal with
- ensure duty holders meet the legal requirements; and
- if appropriate, make sure duty holders are held to account in
the courts for any health and safety failings.
