Are you interested to learn more about barrier based risk management from your sector peers?

During last year’s industry event several rail companies shared their journey with Barrier Based Risk Management. This year we aim to gather and set bowtie best practices for the industry. This event is all about collaboration and offering you the opportunity to exchange thoughts with peers and experts.

Sign up to meet other rail operators and join the industry initiative to make the railway as safe as possible. We look forward to welcoming you on June 11th!
