ONRSR's response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

02 Apr 2020

In response to the Coronavirus situation, ONRSR is working to minimise risk of transmission wherever possible.

To that end, all non-essential travel for meetings, workshops etc. will be cancelled or substituted with skype or teleconference and notification will be provided to stakeholders in the coming days and weeks.

We will also be taking a risk-based approach to what rail safety activities are undertaken. We will be responding to incidents and will undertake rail safety duties where we see a need based on risk.

In the meantime, ONRSR has updated its Fact Sheet providing operators with guidance on areas where the current pandemic COVID-19 is likely to impact on regulatory requirements.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in these times.
