Successful Safety Leadership training at ERA

Successful Safety Leadership training at ERA

4 Sep 2020

Following a strict regime of measures, ERA successfully organised a safety leadership training at its premises with both ERA staff and external rail professionals.

Striving to improve safety culture in railways in the European Union, the Agency has developed a Safety Leadership Training. “Safety is a state of mind. Safety requires time and resources and above all dedication, from the top to the bottom. Let’s not leave anyone behind”, urges ERA’s Executive Director Josef Doppelbauer.

European railway companies recognise the importance of a positive safety culture and a sound safety leadership. To ensure a large and efficient deployment of the training, the Agency has conceived a train-the trainer approach.

After the COVID-19 confinement period, ERA restarted trainings at its premises in Valenciennes, France, following a strict regime of measures.
