The 2021 European Rail Safety Days have come to an end! All the recordings of this event can be found here.

The overarching focus of this edition will be Safety Culture. Under this umbrella, the conference will deal with a variety of safety related topics with inspiring presentations from operational experts and leaders across high-risk industries.

The conference starts on 3 November at 13:00 with keynote speeches on Safety Leadership and with a series of workshops that will stimulate discussions on rail safety. 

This day will also display the results of the European Rail Safety Climate Survey. It is the first of its kind in any high-risk sector at a European scale, launched by the Agency and endorsed by the European Commission, which intends to improve railway safety in Europe. The main event day, 4 November, is structured around the railway safety fundamentals, and offers a number of presentations sharing practical experience from railways and other industries, as well as the possibility to debate with the presenters. On 5 November the event will discuss maintenance of vehicles and infrastructure today and in the future, marking the end of the European Rail Safety Days.
