Research Report 632 Framework for review and prioritisation of rail safety risks in New Zealand

Published: | Category: Safety, security and public health , Research programme , Research & reports | Audiences: General, Rail participants, Road controlling authorities, Road traffic engineers & consultants

The Transport Agency commissioned Navigatus Consulting to undertake this research project to identify and provide evidence-based recommendations for managing priority safety risks for New Zealand rail operations.

The project was carried out in 2015/16 in New Zealand.

The primary purpose of the project was to provide a reliable foundation for future risk reduction activities by carrying out research on best and current risk practice, undertaking a risk assessment to identify priority safety risks, and identifying potential mitigation options to reduce these priority risks to an acceptable level.

A number of recommendations have been made relating to the research undertaken.

Keywords: acceptable risk, benchmarking, health and safety, HSWA, NRSS4, rail, reasonably practicable, risk assessment, risk management, safety, SFAIRP.
