RM³ - Understanding and Using the Risk Management Maturity Model (RM³)
The Office of Rail and Road
(ORR) expect the rail industry to achieve excellence when
controlling health and safety risks. They believe that this is only
possible through effective and efficient management. ORR have
described what excellent management capability looks like in the
Risk Management Maturity Model (RM³). ORR inspectors use this model
to assess duty holders' risk management arrangements as required by
the Railways and Other Guided Transport Systems (Safety)
Regulations 2006 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work
Regulations 1999. RM³ has been embraced by the UK railway industry
and is increasingly influencing activity in Europe through its
adoption by the European Railway Agency.
This course, designed in collaboration with ORR, will provide
- a thorough understanding of what makes a good management system
and why you need one
- how you can use RM³ within your organisation, and
- how an inspector uses RM³ to assess your risk management
HSE is delighted to be collaborating with ORR to deliver
training on RM³. HSE's comprehensive understanding of RM³ and best
practice in the field of health & safety risk management across
a range of industries, along with our knowledge of regulation puts
us in the best position to help you to implement RM³ effectively
and achieve excellence in H&S risk management.
