Don't miss the 14th annual Rail Industry Conference, lead by the IOSH Railway Group. This is a leading event aimed at safety and health professionals and those with an interest or involvement in the railway industry.

The railways are currently a safe way to travel, but it hasn't always been that way and lots of incidents in the past have helped to create a safer railway now.  However, we want to have an even safer railway in the future with no passengers or workers suffering injury or ill health from any aspect of the railway industry.


Therefore this years' conference theme will be considering how lessons that can be learnt from the past, can be used to enhance and improve our future railway culture and experience.


The RSSB Industry document lays out the 12 areas considered high risk, such as fatigue and level crossings and all of these have past incidents to reflect upon. Fatigue is still an issue; 40 years ago there was the Morpeth derailment and 30 years ago there was the Clapham collision. Also regarding level crossings, looking back to the Hixon collision shows how far we have come with areas already improved, but some still to address.


A new Control Period starts in March 2019, to explore where the key learning from the past can help us to build a healthier and safer railway for the future.

This years' conference will feature industry experts who will provide effective and practical advice and learning, to help and positively inspire us to improve.
