Safety Management Systems workshops

Safety Management Systems on Heritage Railways 

The Office of Rail and Road recognise that the heritage rail sector is the most diverse sector of the rail industry in the UK. They are keen to actively engage with all heritage railways and tramways to help them interpret and apply the specific requirement of Rail and Other Guided Systems (ROGS) and to have in place a proportionate safety management system. 

2024 ORR Heritage Workshops 

The Heritage Railway Association is again working with the ORR to offer a programme of seminars to help improve health and safety management capability and, this year, specifically Safety Management Systems. 

We are running six Heritage Workshops at various locations around the country during January and February. 

About the Workshops 

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. 

Each workshop will include: 

The day will also provide a comprehensive opportunity for candid discussion, feedback and networking. 

These complimentary workshops are 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.
