Course overview

This course focuses on the basic elements of risk analysis, accident investigation and safety management for the railways. The course starts off with a discussion of the foundational issues in safety and risk management and supplements it with basic risk analysis techniques for the railways, allowing learners to gain a deepened understanding of the mechanics of safety and risk management.

A significant amount of time is dedicated to accident investigations and accident reports because they provide key insights into the problems, solutions and management of safety. The delivery of safety is treated through railway safety regulations and management. Finally, the course discusses the keystone of successful implementation through safety management systems for the railways.
