Confidential reporting: reducing railway risk

This podcast looks at the part that CIRAS, the Confidential Incident Reporting and Analysis Service, contributes to the continual improvement of safety management for the railway and other transport systems.My guest in this episode is Catherine Baker, director of CIRAS.  We talk about how the confidential reporting service works.  She discusses the types of incidents and reasons for calls, and examples of the results that CIRAS achieves.  She also talks about what CIRAS does to maintain confidentiality, and how the service complements an organisation's existing reporting and whistleblowing systems. Show notes with links to more information about CIRAS and its activities are available in the Blogs section of the RSSB website, under The RSSB Podcast series.
