RM3 Heritage Workshop - Manchester
Three years ago the ORR rolled-out their Risk Management Maturity Model to the heritage rail sector and two years ago they introduced Topic Set 1 for Heritage Railways.
But who’s using it? And how are you getting on?
The ORR are keen for heritage railways to use RM3 to help continuously improve health and safety management capability, so the ORR and the HRA are running six RM3 Heritage Workshops at various locations around the country.
Booking is now open for our first workshop which is ideally suited to those in the North of England and North Wales.
Date: Thursday, 1 December 2022
Venue: ORR Manchester Offices, Piccadilly Gate, Store Street, Manchester, M1 2WD
Time: 09:30 (for 10:00 start) to 16:15 (approximately)
Free of charge to all HRA members and minor railways
Places at each event are being limited to around 40 people so, initially, we can only accept two registrations from each railway. If you have more than two people wanting to attend, please email their details to Amy at the HRA for the waiting list; firstname.lastname@example.org
Refreshments throughout the day and a light lunch will be provided.
We expect that places will be taken up quite quickly, so it is advisable to book early.
Bookings for Manchester are open until 10am on Friday, 25 November.
The workshops are open to all standard gauge, narrow gauge and 15” gauge railways, and all other railways and tramways regulated by the ORR. Operators of funicular railways are also welcome to attend.
The principal speaker will be Mark Griffiths, ORR’s SMS Policy and RM3 manager, and each workshop will include:
Introductions from the HRA and ORR
Safety in the sector
Case studies on using RM3
A collaborative heritage railway focussed RM3 learning exercise
The day will also provide a comprehensive opportunity for candid discussion, feedback and networking.
This complimentary event is being run by the ORR in conjunction with the HRA.
The ORR would like every operating railway to attend, and the event is open to non HRA heritage railway operators.
