Event Details

Railway Risk Assessments in an EU Context - Valuing Life, and How Safe is Safe Enough?

Presented by Jonathan Ellis Ph.D, Principal Consultant, Risk Analysis at DNV GL


Jonathan studied metallurgy at university and following a spell in the metallurgical sector in the UK Jonathan joined the railway where he worked for 11 years before joining DNV GL as a Principal Consultant in their risk advisory team.

At DNV GL Jonathan has undertaken assignments on quality assurance on oil and gas projects, safety audits of transport companies against High Reliability Organisation characteristics, suicide reporting on railways and the economic cost of railway suicide, occurrence reporting generally, risk acceptance criteria for dangerous goods transport in the EU, quantitative risk assessment of rail freight wagon catastrophic failure and railway risk modelling.

Jonathan has recently finished a board level review of safety performance for an entertainment company, comparing its approaches to safety to those in the oil/gas sector.

Topics of focus for this Technical Presentation:

 1)      Valuing life and how safe is safe enough? – Jonathan will step through the evolution of thinking in risk acceptance criteria up to the current legal concepts for railways in EU legislation, and how risk acceptance is influenced by perceptions of the benefit from accepting the risk. And following with how the economic impact of suicide on railways was looked at.

2)     The application of quantative risk assessment to freight wagon failures.
