Public Lecture by Prof George Bearfield - Enhancing System Safety: The challenge of the Sandilands tram accident

18:30 - 20:00, 19 April 2018

At Brontë Lecture Theatre 2

Professor Bearfield is Director of System Safety and Health at the the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) and responsible for work which supports the rail industry in all aspects of health and safety management and also assurance processes and capabilities.

In this lecture Professor Bearfield, will share his experience on how the challenge can be faced strategically, and in a way which effectively drives the culture change that is ultimately demanded by such accidents. 

Lessons from a range of sectors and countries will be discussed and in particular how the mainline railway in Great Britain responded to similar challenges following the train collision at Ladbroke Grove and a spate of other major rail accidents in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
