Industry Health & Safety
Chair: Mark Carne (Network Rail)
RDG Lead: Roan Willmore
Through Duty Holders fulfilling their responsibilities and through working together, our responsibility extends to our customers, our staff and contractors, our line-side neighbours and anyone who comes into contact with the railway.
Following dialogue between members of the RDG and the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB), a cross-industry workshop was held in January 2015 which supported the development of a rail industry safety strategy to fulfil specific criteria. It is not a ‘top down’, overarching strategy, but a description of the architecture and processes the industry has in place to manage health and safety and work together.
It is planned to endorse the strategy document at the RSSB in October 2015 given its wider membership than RDG.
