RSSB: LHSBR Quarterly Progress Report

Leading Health and Safety on Britain’s Railway (LHSBR) was published in April 2020. The framework presented in LHSBR sets a direction for how the industry will work together to make the railway better and safer. It sets out 12 priority risk areas to manage, and 5 capability areas for development. The industry has agreed that each will deliver a railway that is healthier and safer, and provides a best-in-class service to customers.

Some of the priority areas cover risk that is wholly generated by rail activity and is the responsibility of the relevant rail duty holders. Others cover risk that is subject to societal or individual behaviours (for example, at level crossings). While we cannot control all risks, we can try to influence and manage them.

The LHSBR quarterly progress reports give an update on what the industry is doing to meet the strategy’s aims and objectives – they include safety performance data.

Published by RSSB, with input from industry and support from the LHSBR Executive Advisory Group (LEAG), System Safety Risk Group (SSRG) and the Rail Wellbeing Alliance (RWA) this update provides an overview of the progress to implement the LHSBR strategy.

The LHSBR Quarterly progress report published in December summarises safety performance and strategy implementation advancements for Q2, periods 4 to 6 (27 June – 18 September) 2021/22. We have provided a more comprehensive report for each risk area on their individual pages. The LHSBR Quarterly progress report aims to:

  • share information
  • provoke discussion
  • elicit feedback
  • monitor cross-industry activity
  • improve safety, health and wellbeing performance.

To improve the coverage and usefulness of future editions, RSSB welcomes feedback, particularly where stakeholders are aware of significant industry activity relevant to the strategy.
