The second week of October will see four separate events, all with safety as their theme, held in London. UIC is participating in three of them and is a major sponsor of the two events listed below.
The following events, hosted by RSSB, Network Rail and ORR, take place from 8 – 10 October 2012 in London, followed by technical excursions on the 11/12:
- 12th Global Level Crossing and Trespass Symposium (GLX) “Working together to improve safety and performance at level crossings” www.levelcrossing2012.org
- 22nd International Railway Safety Conference (IRSC) “Leadership, culture, behaviours and the integration of human factors into management systems” www.irsc2012.org
The closing date to submit abstracts of presentations for both conferences is 10 May 2012.
The registration for participation in both conferences, which are not run commercially, but to break even, is open at the links above.
On the following day, 11 October, the UIC Safety Platform Plenary takes place in London and the ORR is hosting an ‘international workers day’ event.
The hosts and sponsors of each of these events extend a warm welcome to anyone who has an interest in or who can contribute to improving railway safety to join them in London in October!
