Following the successful Safety Summit in 2018, it is our pleasure to announce the European Rail Safety Days, which will be held on 14-16 June 2021 in Porto, in cooperation with the upcoming EU Presidency of Portugal. 

The European Rail Safety Days aim to inspire, offer networking opportunities and exchange knowledge across the industry. It is a unique opportunity for European rail leaders and professionals to meet and reflect on the safety developments within and outside the sector. Sharing cross-industry lessons to drive cultural change is paramount to accomplish the goal of Europe as world leader in railway safety. 

The event will provide the setting to exchange such good practices. It will also mark the official start of the first European rail safety climate survey, open to all European rail professionals.

Conference topics will be:

  • Cultural changes > Create a common understanding of the European railway safety culture model and how it can be used as a framework to achieve sustainable and safe performance.
  • Safety leadership > Design and implement initiatives to develop safety leadership skills targeting rail safety managers at all levels
  • Maintenance of the railway system > How to consider the maintenance partners as stakeholders in railway safety?

On 14 June, the event will kick off with safety leadership and a variety of practical workshops to foster dialogue and share safety learnings. This will be followed-up with the main event on safety culture on 15 June. On 16 June, the conference will deal with the contribution of the maintenance activities in ensuring railway safety.
