Rail Industry Safety & Standards Board – Safety Conference
May 3, 2022 - 8:00 am - May 4, 2022 - 5:00 pm
The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) Rail Safety conference returns to Melbourne in May 2022 as a face-to-face event with virtual attendance options.
As the world recovers from COVID, the demand to rebuild our people and assets in a resilient and sustainable way has never been more important. Following the recent announcements at COP26, almost 90% of the world’s greenhouse emissions are coming from countries with a pledge to net zero. This is important to the whole rail industry as the safety impacts become more frequent due to climate change.
Rail has a central role to play on this journey and reflecting this, RISSB Rail Safety 2022 will address the theme ‘Safety Climate and Climate Safety’. Protecting our people and assets has never been more important and as organisations bring people and climate change to the core of every decision, now is the time to act.
The rail industry has traditionally used engineering, technology and the power of its people to champion change. Join us as we address rail’s journey to decarbonization and the safety impacts of green energy, supply chain transformation and risk management.
