Safety and safety improvement
in the Australian rail transport industry is a fundamental objective of ONRSR.
ONRSR will encourage, enable
and support the national rail industry by:
- working with industry
stakeholders to develop an industry owned national rail safety risk model
- identifying risk-based safety
improvement initiatives which build industry capacity
- supporting safety research and
identifying best practice in safety risk management and assurance
- conducting dedicated forums
- working with industry on the
development and adoption of Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB)
- supporting industry
stakeholders to develop and implement safety improvement initiatives
- supplementing industry and
other standards with ONRSR guidance or approved codes of practice
- recommending changes to
legislation to improve the functioning of the Rail Safety National Law
- providing a consistent and
clear regulatory platform.
In doing so, ONRSR will
continue to work with industry to identify local and national risk and develop
safety improvement tools and guidance material.
