PIRL Systems - Global Safety Communications
Severe Weather Incident Management


Railmet Services can provide remote teams dedicated to initial root cause identification when sub optimal safety and performance targets are experienced.

This first step in clarifying the relationship between external forces such as severe weather events and the resultant impact on the operational integrity of the railway paves the way for creation of a bespoke suite of mitigation products and processes.

Resultant Corporate knowledge of this Cause & Effect process will enable Control, Operations and Maintenance personnel to subsequently recognise areas of emerging risk and deploy appropriate proactive measures in order to minimise the safety and performance impact during seasonal and severe weather conditions.

The adoption of techniques briefly described above has proven to contribute positively to the Corporate reputation and has also created enhanced relationships with its customers.
