Safe railways for Australia

The ONRSR Way – version 2


ONRSR has updated its key regulatory document – The ONRSR Way – which provides regulated parties and rail safety stakeholders with a clear understanding of how we do business.

While by no means a re-write, the updated document reflects ONRSR’s maturity into a fully national entity with direct delivery of regulatory functions in all Australian states and territories.

It also clarifies further ONRSR’s role as an educator of rail transport operators and rail safety workers and our approach to investigations, with details of the powers our rail safety officers have under Rail Safety National Law in this space.

Among a range of other topics covered are:

  • what type of regulator ONRSR is
  • ONRSR’s risk-based approach to regulation
  • what operators can expect from regulatory activities
  • ONRSR’s continuous improvement agenda

Hard copies of The ONRSR Way version 2 are available by contacting ONRSR direct.
