London to host global accident investigation forum in December


Transport IQ recently scheduled a Global Rail Accident Investigation Forum for Dec. 9-12 at Café Royal in London.

The first global accident-investigation conference tailored for senior rail management, the forum aims to "bring greater cohesion, clarity and collaboration to all the stakeholders involved in rail accidents and subsequent investigations," according to a prepared statement.

Speakers include representatives from Canadian Pacific Railway, Network Rail, London Underground, the Swiss Investigation Bureau, Dutch Transport Safety Board and British Transport Police.

Presentations will focus on training staff to assist operating managers in their investigations, conducting successful root-cause investigations, identifying faults in mechanical components and implementing regular inspections.

Transport IQ expects attendees to include railroads, infrastructure owners, regulatory authorities, rolling-stock companies and technology providers.
