As the industry bounces back after a challenging few years and tirelessly strives to meet the challenge of net-zero, the maintenance and construction of rail assets in a sustainable and resilient manner has never been more important. But safety must remain at the heart of these activities. 

Protecting our passengers and the people who keep the rail running is a central concern and must be the priority when work is being planned on the railway. With this in mind, the Rail Safety Summit is an event that cannot be missed!
