Safe railways for Australia

Vision and values

Our vision

Safe railways for Australia

The safety of the community will always be at the forefront of our strategic planning and the ultimate objective of our work to promote and improve rail safety across Australia.

Having a vision and a set of values gives us our aspirational goal and defines how we will go about realising it. It also gives our external stakeholders an idea of why we are here and what we’re trying to achieve.

We are united by our commitment to delivering safe railways for Australia and we draw on the collective experience, passion and dedication of staff from many and varied regulatory and corporate backgrounds to do this.
