I am looking to place a Health and Safety Specialist in a very unique research position, the end goal being an update to the way health and safety principles are applied by Network Rail across the UK’s rail networks. The role is ideally to be based in London, but the role could be based primarily remotely / from home for the right individual.

The major method of assessing safety performance / observed harm on the UK rail network is via used Fatalities and Weighted Injuries (FWI), previously known as equivalent fatalities, with metrics combining and informing the range of different consequences that can occur from an activity or event. Lost Time Injury (LTI) and Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) are becoming increasingly popular as well. This portion of research feeds into the wider project to analyse the validity of current and other metrics used to analyse Health and Safety outcomes, comparing UK Rail / non-UK Rail, and UK Rail / UK non-rail. This also covers how these metrics are gathered, analysed and applied in ‘real’ terms and the costs/benefits.

Your job will be to design and carry out a survey that analyses all of the above using your own industry contacts as well as utilising the firm’s major public and private sector contacts, all with the end goal of improving safety within the Rail industry.

Ideally, you will have a strong background in Health and Safety across multiple industries, potentially with experience in non-UK markets. From your experience, you will be able to gather safety metrics, benchmark, produce safety reports in plain English and understand/propose how different safety metrics can genuinely benefit the UK rail industry, utilising good practice techniques from other industry. You will likely have had a relevant education in health and safety, or transferred into Health and Safety after working in the industry after a number of years. Likewise, you will likely have a professional accreditation/membership of a relevant Health and Safety body (IOSH, IIRSM).

This role is due to start as soon as possible, the aim being production of a draft report by the end of November. It is an intense piece of research that will help inform the way health and safety is managed within the UK rail industry for years to come.
