The railway is a complex system with multiple interfaces delivered by many different organisations. At RSSB we bring these different organisations together to make collective decisions.
Through research, risk modelling and analysis we help the rail industry in the areas of safety, standards, knowledge, and innovation. We support the railway too across a wide range of cross-industry topics requiring our knowledge and independence. And we provide a constant point of reference in a changing environment.
Our work involves close collaboration, but as technical experts we’re also able to step back and provide an informed view. Because we can see both the big picture and the detail, we’re able to furnish the industry with the information and tools it needs to continuously improve.
We’re an expert body with a wide compass of knowledge, skills and experience. We’re owned by the industry but are non-profit-making and independent of any commercial interests.
