Pre Metro Operations has become a member of RSSB (Rail Safety and Standards Board) in order to further enhance and share best practice in rail safety. PMOL joins 94 other member companies, including fellow train operating companies, contractors, infrastructure managers and suppliers.
Last year, RSSB spent £10.6m on research, generating potential benefit to the rail industry of £320m. RSSB is also responsible for the production of the British Railway Rule Book, which defines technical standards and operating procedures. It also promotes rail safety within schools.
Pre Metro Operations Chief Executive Phil Evans said;
“We are pleased to join RSSB and share best practice procedures with our colleagues within the railway industry. Our light rail operation is unique in the UK, and we will benefit from working with others to ensure that safety remains our top priority”.
