Safe and accessible rail

The rail industry is committed to delivering safe and accessible services for everyone in our community, while maintaining the highest safety standards for the people who work in the industry.

A national safety focus

The ARA supports a national focus on rail safety to make it easier for people to work safely across jurisdictions. We work with the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator on issues including fatigue management, drug and alcohol management and the review of national rail safety laws to ensure safety continues to improve and evolve.

Improving safety data

The National Rail Safety Data Strategy is being developed by the ARA and the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator to inform data driven decision making and policy development on safety issues.

Providing accessible rail services

The rail industry continues to improve accessibility across the rail network to make sure rail services are available for those who need it.
