Common Safety Method / Targets

2 Day Course

The Common Safety Method (CSM) has implications for the way that safety arguments and risk assessments are made on the mainline railway. The CSM is a European Commission (EC) regulation. It is not applicable to all railways for example trams and metros. All changes to the railway after July 2012 will employ the CSM for all changes deemed significant. It is the law now that this approach must be followed.

New Common Safety Targets (CST) and how they are derived are explained with examples and it is clearly delineated what the impact of CST are for organisations.
