System Safety (CSM-RA) Management
2021 - Present
As part of the re-development of the Brent Cross area a new railway station is being funded and delivered by the London Borough of Barnet (LBB). HSRS are leading the system safety activities for this third party funded scheme demonstrating compliance to the CSM-RA Regulations and therefore how this new station will be safely integrated into the existing railway network.
Lack of experience within the Local Authority in setting the strategy to achieving Authorisation for Placing into Service (APIS) from the National Safety Authority, the Office of Rail and Road (ORR); potentially leading to delays to Authorisation and the station being bought into use.
Engagement with internal and external approval bodies had not commenced including the ORR, NRAP, Route SRP, CSM-RA Assessment Body and NTSN Approval Body; which would have again led to significant delays to Authorisation.
Some elements of the system safety work had not been developed for a period of the station's design activities due to unclear contractual scope between the Local Authority and the Infrastructure Manager who were delivering the Railway Systems work package. Had the situation remained then an unsupportive Safety Assessment Report would have been received by the CSM-RA Assessment Body.
