Safety is the primary concern of every railway.

Whether it is carrying hazardous goods through urban areas, transporting passengers at high speed or people simply commuting to work.

We provide expert advice and services to the developers, operators and regulators of railway systems – enabling them to achieve world-class safety performance without inhibiting innovation.


Our approach relies on developing an effective safety management system that provides the organization and regulators with safety assurance. A vital part of the safety management system is system safety. This ensures that railways are designed to be safe and stay that way as the system develops and obsolete equipment is replaced. The result is Rail Safety & Systems Assurance.


How we can help you

We will help you find ways of improving rail safety management that ensure the most efficient use of limited resources and integrates the process into the organization’s day-to-day activities.



Every railway system is different and each operates in a different culture. We always begin by listening carefully to the client’s requirements and avoid imposing “one size fits all” solutions.



To deliver maximum value, we regularly review the client’s requirements and our approach to ensure that we are addressing the real issues.



We deal with sensitive issues and understand the importance of maintaining client confidentiality at all times.



Our wide experience of developing and applying safety management techniques and approaches ensures that our opinion counts.



We develop light-touch regulatory regimes and effective safety management systems that give the regulators, owners and operators of rail systems assurance that they will achieve world-class safety performance.


Railways are complex systems that need to follow a rigorous development lifecycle. We help rail developers use proven techniques to ensure that safety requirements are captured and achieved efficiently.

Independent Competent Person

To minimize interventions by safety regulators, we can provide a named ICP (supported by a small team of experts if required) to ensure that internal processes are being applied correctly.
