The scope of the study covers all local measures put into place as part of Safety Management Systems and in order to comply with legal obligations. The checks studies are those carried out at the first level of management – usually team leaders.
The objectives are as follows:
- Collect information about how railway company local management checks are organised and performed,
- Create a body of “good practice” which can be shared,
- Provide each member network with a document recapitulating the various types of local management checks used in a selection of companies. This will highlight those systems where such checks have reached a certain level of maturity, the differences which exist as well as the strengths and difficulties involved. The document will also offer various options for possible progress or advice about implementation.
