rail safetyThrough effective risk-based regulation the ONRSR aims to enhance and promote rail safety. This regulatory approach is outlined throughout the newest edition of the Rail Industry Guide to Safety, released as a collaborative effort by Pro-Visual Publishing and the National Rail Safety Regulator. This guide seeks to work alongside the ONRSR’s values and aims to promote rail safety to all rail industry members.

In order to maintain and improve rail safety in Australia, the ONRSR has provided information referring to their regulatory approach and corporate plan when dealing with safety. Further details pertaining to the ONRSR, their roles and responsibilities are also included in this guide.

In addition, this year’s guide provides information on safety management systems. A safety management system is a rail transport operator’s formal record of the risks to safety it has identified within its operations, details of how those risks will be managed and the methods for monitoring both the risks and effectiveness of the controls. The Rail Safety National Law has been developed with the principles of shared responsibility and accountability. All parties associated with the railway have responsibilities to ensure safety is a priority.
