Safe railways for Australia

ONRSR releases Rail Safety Report 2017-2018

08 Jan 2019

ONRSR’s annual snapshot of rail safety has been released and for the first time this important resource covers all Australian states and territories following the inclusion of data from Queensland.

The Rail Safety Report 2017–2018 provides a review of rail industry safety performance based on the notifiable occurrence reporting required under Rail Safety National Law, documenting safety within the Australian rail industry through the last financial year.

Once again the report includes detail of incidents requiring ONRSR response and some of the positive initiatives being taken by industry. It also covers our safety priorities and how data driven intelligence is supporting our risk-based approach to regulation.

Read and download a copy of the report.

ONRSR is keen to receive any feedback or questions on the Rail Safety Report 2017–2018 and these should be directed to
