Safe railways for Australia

Operations Forum


The Operations Forum aims to give the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator (ONRSR) and rail industry representatives the opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss localised operational rail safety and regulation issues specific to that region.

The Forum is held at the discretion of individual Directors Operations to suit office circumstances and local operational issues. It is intended that a Forum is held by each ONRSR Office once each year.

The forum provides excellent networking opportunities with agenda items devoted to issues of interest and local relevance. This may take the form of presentations, panel discussions and/or interactive workshops.

Forums also incorporate presentations by ONRSR staff and include question time for attendees.

The forums are intended to allow attendees to:

  • Discuss compliance issues at an operator level.
  • Have input into ONRSR’s regulatory strategies to improve safety in the industry.
  • Review and contribute to safety improvement initiatives developed by ONRSR.
  • Be kept informed of ONRSR-related issues that are considered through other rail industry consultative committees.
  • Have input into focus of future sessions.

For further details or feedback and suggestions for forum discussion topics please contact the Director Operations in your local office.
