RISSB Rail Safety 2016 Conference #RailSafety16
One Regulator. One Vision. One Industry.
With the central theme of the RISSB Rail Safety 2016 conference set to examine how the Australia rail industry can move forward as - "One Regulator. One Vision. One Industry." - we look forward to two days of discussion and knowledge share on how to make this possible.
In order for attendees to garner the most value from the conference we are actively seeking a range of case studies to feature on the program from both local and international speakers. As well as this, attendees will hear from the regulator and safety professionals from across the industry to ensure knowledge sharing, best practice insights and take away solutions are the prime focus of the 2 day conference.
Every year in Australia and New Zealand there are roughly 1,000 near misses along railway tracks and at railway-crossings. Approximately 200 of these result in death or serious injury. For rail safety in Australia to move forward we need "One Regulator. One Vision. One Industry."
We look forward to discussing the future of our industry with you in Adelaide in April.
