Safe railways for Australia

ONRSR to present at WA's Dangerous Goods Rail Safety Forum


20 September 2017

ONRSR will be presenting at next month’s Dangerous Goods Rail Safety Forum in Perth. The Western Australian Government’s Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety is hosting the forum which will provide attendees with an opportunity to discuss safer management of dangerous goods transport by rail.

ONRSR will be represented by WA Branch Director Peter Cumming, who in addition to providing an overview of ONRSR, will discuss operator rail safety duties and roles and responsibilities. He will also focus on where ONRSR is interested in dangerous goods management – typically at the pre-event stage but also management during an event and prevention in the first place.

Other speakers will then be talking about risk management and emergency response and recovery.

The forum will be held on Tuesday, 17 October, 8am – 4pm at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, 180 Hay Street, East Perth.

The event is free to attend but it is important to register here.
