12:00 PM Overcoming Complex Construction Challenges by Upholding Freight Rail Safety Responsibilities and Risk Management Strategies
The Inland Rail is made up of routes faced with challenging geological conditions. This can be particularly dangerous, especially when engineers do not know what structures they may potentially come across during construction. This workshop will explore the safety responsibilities, risk management strategies and upholding up to date construction methods to allow for safe construction through mixed and complex conditions.
What will the workshop cover?
- Identifying a safety vision and safety management approach to ensure operators and workers comply with instructions to mitigate risks
- Exploring future safety challenges to be faced across freight and other multi-modal integrated transport systems
- Using multi-forum risk sharing and transparent risk documentation processes, shared with the client, to improve the sophistication of risk controls, enhance shared analysis of risks, and improve identification of education requirements
- Insights into the measures that are used in regards to risk-based geotechnical investigations
