Often named or even required in regulations and guidelines: the Safety Manager.
But what exactly must the safety manager be able to do? What interfaces does he have in the company? Is the Safety Manager anchored in the project – or rather the staff position in the company? What is the real responsibility of the Safety Manager?

The role in the project or company, but also the understanding of the role of the safety manager varies depending on the company’s orientation. Operators, manufacturers and maintenance personnel set their own requirements – and the authority or the expert also sets standards.

From the experience of the last 10 years, we have compiled requirements of standardization, industry, associations and university and built this attractive training. Top-notch lecturers will present on current topics with a focus on rail safety.
