We have undertaken RM3 assessments with a wide range of rail companies and have developed our own RM3-D methodology to create consistency. This allows it to be useful as a bench-marking tool, for comparisons between companies and for target setting. The aim is for organisations to achieve excellence in safety risk control and this can only be done through effective management.
The Demonstration of Safety Excellence across the Rail Industry
RM3 has been produced by the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) especially for the transport sector, and is increasingly being used throughout the railway supply chain to demonstrate excellence. It is also embedded into the way the Regulator assesses the maturity of Duty Holder’s safety management.
As part of QSS’s RM3 service, we provide familiarisation training on RM3, which includes an introduction to the Model, how it can be used and the levels that can be achieved by organisations. The course also gives the opportunity to practice the identification of evidence for assigning levels.
Why Choose QSS?
QSS are well placed to provide RM3 assessments and training, as we are experienced in providing Train Operators with their RM3 score based on audit evidence and regularly undertake RM3 assessments based on observation. Recognising that this could be very subjective and lacking a baselining capability, QSS developed the RM3-D model to undertake RM3 assessments and scoring in a much more objective and systematic manner.
The bespoke tool kit that QSS have developed using our experience of Rail Company deployment, allows the RM3 assessment to be objectified. The QSS RM3 model has a set of awards to recognise the achievement of an organisation. The QSS Tool Set also involves a new and easy to understand visualisation function which shows where organisations need to improve, to attain higher scores within the model.
