Systematic Safety for RSSR RSSR系统安全性
Safety and risk often introduce fierce debates about what is true, what is good, what is possible, what is justified, what is viable and what is sustainable. This module investigates those fundamental questions by focussing on the systems approach to safety. The model treats the principles and philosophy safety, safety systems, system engineering and safety management in general terms and their application to railways in the past, the present and the future.
Learning from Accidents 事故学习及分析
The hallmark of modern safety analysis is that we learn from accidents to prevent them from happening again and that the correct mitigations are in place. We have gone from a reactive approach to safety in the early days of rail to this proactive mind-set. This module aims to provide the student with a critical understanding of the lessons from history regarding railway safety and how we learn to avoid accidents in the future based upon these events.
Safety Decision Making 安全决策
In a regulated industry it is important that the developers, operators and regulators of rail systems have a shared view of the acceptable level of risk. This module focuses on the question: How safe is safe enough? The module treats moral and ethical dimensions of safety decision-making, established techniques for decision making and the practical implications of this in science, and under different legal and regulatory regimes.
Risk Analysis 风险分析
This module focuses on a risk analyst’s toolbox. This module aims to provide you with a broad understanding of the tools and techniques used to identify and prioritise hazards/risks, and then assess how effective additional risk controls would be. The module has a high mathematical content and a dedicated session will be used to teach safety-relevant mathematical and statistical techniques.
Engineering Safety Management 工程安全管理
This module examines how Engineering Safety Management (ESM) is used to ensure that new engineering designs are introduced safely onto railway systems. The module focuses on the international standards EN50126, EN50128 and EN50129 for railway safety and reliability, and provides a means of synthesizing the lessons learnt throughout the railway safety domain.
Human Factors, Culture and Competency 人为因素、文化及职业能力
In any safety-critical environment, people are both a major strength and a major weakness. The railway system is a complex interaction of humans and technology so problems are bound to arise. This module aims to give students an overview of how human factors affect the safety and the complexity of the system.
Safety Regulation and Approvals 安全监管与准入
This module addresses safety approval of new systems and ongoing regulation of operational systems, with a particular focus on the regulatory regime and economic constraints that apply. This takes into account regulatory best practice and the legal basis for regulation, focussing on safety law.
Safety Leadership and Communication 安全领导力与沟通
To be effective, safety managers and engineers need to be able to convince others to follow their lead in improving safety or, where safety performance is already good, agree that additional interventions are not justified. This requires strong analytical skills, subject mastery and the ability to communicate messages effectively. This module will focus on combining the content of all prior modules in the MSc RSSR and managerial skills to provide students with the building blocks to become inspirational safety leaders.
