Safety Management

Safety and approval management with a complete portfolio for all safety-related topics. From risk and hazard analyses to CSM analyses and detailed inspection plans.

Reduced project duration. High process reliability during commissioning. Comprehensive safety management expertise is a critical factor for efficient and on-schedule project processes.

Safety is essential for the success of railway systems. Not only in operation, but also for smarter processes in each project phase. Documents that are optimally prepared and executed in accordance with standards, such as risk and hazard analyses and detailed inspection plans, can significantly shorten project duration and commissioning approval. For example, by minimising revisions, using standard-compliant tendering procedures and ensuring process reliability during commissioning.

This is why up-to-date knowledge of the applicable standards, regulations and procedures as well as the embedding of legal requirements into project workflows is essential for the success of your projects. With our team of renowned safety management experts with many years of experience, NEXTRAIL is at your side with specialist expertise in the railway sector for all safety-related topics.
