Risk management in your safety case

When developing a safety case, which is a requirement in order to become a licensed rail participant (see Rail safety cases), organisations must demonstrate they have management systems in place to:

  • identify and assess the safety risks arising from its rail activities, and
  • develop and implement safety risk control measures.

The term ‘management systems’ encompasses all the aspects of an operating framework, including the documents and tools your organisation uses to demonstrate its safety case, which include:

  • safety policies
  • risk identification and assessment procedures
  • risk registers
  • safety control selection methods
  • safety control implementation and monitoring procedures
  • critical risk and critical task management procedures
  • training plans and competency measures
  • joint operating procedures with those you interact with
  • audit and assurance plans
  • quality assurance methods, and
  • reporting and notification procedures.
