The international railway industry is enjoying a period of significant growth across the world. Europe's trans-continental mixture of state-owned and franchise operated networks continues its steady march towards the introduction of newer, faster trains and tracks, supported by increasingly sophisticated signalling and safety systems.
Unfortunately, 2013 has witnessed some serious accidents, and while they are mercifully rare, these occurrences show that rail industry firms' operational risk mitigation measures cannot exclude the possibility of large incidents.
Aon Global Risk Consulting has carried out extensive studies, revealing trends around pertinent issues. It is our belief that with more information at hand, risk managers within the railway industries can support the long term strategic goals of their businesses and maintain a commitment to safety.
