Towards the European Railway Safety Culture Model

In 2017, the European Union Agency for Railways launched an ambitious programme to foster the development of a positive safety culture across European railways. The programme includes the design of methods and tools to evaluate the safety culture of railway organisations, in particular infrastructure managers (IMs) and railway undertakings (RUs). The interest in such developments has been reinforced recently with the publication of European secondary legislation, which introduced new requirements for the safety management systems implemented by IMs and RUs.
