HSL is to run a 2 day course on Understanding and Using the Risk Management Maturity Model (RM3).
19-20 July 2016
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
HSL is delighted to be collaborating with ORR to deliver
training on RM³. HSL’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.
Overview of the RM3 Model
The course will cover:
- Key elements of a good health and safety management system
- RM³: its development and organisational benefits
- How to use and apply RM³ within your organisation
- Key challenges that organisations face, including setting
safety performance indicators (SPIs) and developing competent
- Consideration of the human element of health and safety
The course uses a mixture of presentations and group exercises
(including knowledge sharing activities to ensure good practice is
shared) over two days to ensure delegates fully understand the
This course can also be run as an in-house course for
organisations who would like groups of their staff trained in RM3.
We are happy to discuss any modifications to the course content in
these circumstances to ensure the training is tailored to your
Who should attend?
This course is intended as an introduction to RM³ and therefore
would suit those who have little or no knowledge of RM³ and its
application. Whilst this course is tailored to those who are
responsible for health & safety risk management in the rail
industry, delegates from other industries will find the course of
relevance due to the cross-industry applicability of the principles
of excellent risk management.
The course will take place at the HSL site in the spa town of
Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good
links to mainline train stations and Manchester International
For in-house courses, HSL will deliver the training at your own
premises. Please get in touch with our Training Unit to discuss
