Newly released RSR research recommend solutions for safer railways

The RSR has adopted a risk-based approach towards the regulation of safety within the railway environment.  The aim is to guide the industry towards excellence in railway safety management by creating an enabling atmosphere for the reduction of operational risks to as low as reasonably practical. 

The RSR recently completed two research undertakings in collaboration with the University of Pretoria. The research investigates what factors contribute to PTI and level crossing occurrences, suggest solutions that may be more effective in tackling these issues while contributing to the body of knowledge in the rail sector.
