There will also be an opportunity to network with other professionals and explore the conference exhibition.

The full conference programme will be available soon. Here's a taster of what to expect.

Conference opening speech.

This talk explains the accident and its causal factors at a high level. Alan, the RAIB Chief Inspector, considers the lessons we can take about information sharing and cooperation.

Ann's talk is about RSSB's new health and safety strategy for rail in Great Britain. The strategy covers five key risks:

  • public behaviour
  • health and wellbeing
  • operations
  • asset management
  • occupational health and safety.

This presentation shares a number of real-world use cases. Emily looks at how teams and disciplines work together to use data to increase safety and remote monitoring capability.

Investigation is at the front of many people's minds due to the Post Office issues. Iain presents on how he is changing investigation professionals for the better in rail. Using it as a tool to impact on culture, learning and business improvement. The key is working together in many ways to create positive outcomes for everyone from the worst situations.
