Safety management can only be effective when all staff share and live a common commitment to safety. This is where leadership plays a paramount role to guide any cultural change. This key contribution is underlined in the safety culture model and the safety culture declaration.
The Agency has developed a 1-day training on safety leadership targeting rail managers at all levels (see training objectives and agenda below). The training is based on a film which explores the circumstances leading to a real accident that took place within a railway undertaking. See the trailer.
The training has been successfully tested with several railway organisations and is now further deployed.
More information upon request here (select "Safety Trainings and Assistance" topic).
The training relies on five safety leadership principles, each broken down into several practical behavioural expectations.
