Book tickets Tell me about the event

We're used to hearing phrases like "work smart, work safe". They're a reminder that safety is never off the agenda.

The consequences of what happens when things go wrong was tragically demonstrated by the Croydon tram derailment in 2016.

Britain’s railways have maintained an enviable safety record in recent years, but reports of incidents and near misses demonstrate that there is room for improvement.

Register for the Rail Safety Summit to hear HSEQ leaders from the ORR, RAIB and Network Rail discuss the issues that matter.
