Railway Safety

Railway Safety operates as a centre of excellence for all matters relating to railway safety. As well as taking over many of the functions of the former Safety and Standards Directorate within Railtrack PLC, Railway Safety has an expanded role to help focus the industry on improved safety management.

Our vision is to build a justified public confidence that the railway is safe and developing safely.

Railway Safety is a not-for-profit, wholly-owned subsidiary of Network Rail. The company is limited by guarantee and separate from its operational sister company, Network Rail.
