Risk Assessment and Management
Applying safety techniques developed to the standards of the UK Rail Industry and other internationally renowned safety levels, and drawing from our multi-discipline experience, we are able to provide safety support ranging from modification risk assessments through to the development and authoring of complete safety cases.
BMT also provides design and construction stage risk management services to ensure efficient, timely and safe project delivery and optimal design for safety and constructability.
Independent Safety Assessment (ISA)
ISA has been widely implemented in the railway industry to assure that systems conform to safety requirements and standards. Its aim is to provide an objective and independent analysis of safety, especially for safety critical elements.
Our independence allows us to undertake independent reviews and audits of safety issues. We acted as ISA for the introduction to service of the Class 3000 to Northern Ireland Railways (NIR), the first new train introduction by NIR to follow the safety case approach. We also acted as ISA for the Singapore Downtown Line Platform Screen Door (PSD) system.
Safety Management Systems
A Safety Management System is the basis for making sure that a transport system runs safely and in line with transport regulations. It ensures that an operator keeps records of all arrangements for managing safety risk on the rail network. BMT has worked with operators throughout the world to ensure that the systems and processes they have in place comply with the required regulations.
