Professional Indemnity Cover for ATHRA Assessors
ATHRA has been successful in negotiating terms with Aon Insurance brokers to have our assessors for T&H Rail Safety Worker roles included on our Protector Liability Insurance cover which includes Management Liability and Professional Liability cover. Please note that this cover is different to Public Liability Insurance cover.
Until recently this could have been a very expensive exercise for ATHRA however Aon has come to the party to ensure ATHRA and its assessors are covered at no extra cost to ATHRA.
ATHRA assessors are now covered worldwide (apart from the USA) and now have the peace of mind they have insurance to cover them.
This further highlights the benefit of being an ATHRA member and utilising the training and assessment packages and external ATHRA assessors to satisfy the requirements of ONRSR at a very minimal cost to the member organisation

National rail safety data to be overhauled
(ARA Contact Emma Woods and ATHRA contact Vicki Ducrow)
Rail safety data is undergoing a national review. Industry has been unsatisfied with current rail safety data information and the data currently reported to ONRSR does not meet industry or ONRSR requirements. Recognising this, the ARA, industry, ONRSR and other key safety stakeholders are wiping the slate clean to establish a fresh list of rail safety data for collection nationally. This process aims to reduce the current reporting burden on industry and provides industry with the opportunity to table its rail safety data requirements. The overarching strategy has been approved by the ARA and ONRSR Boards and is available here. A working group is developing a list of rail safety data. This will be considered at the Safety Managers Group meeting in October. ATHRA will be providing input to the working group via Vicki Ducrow (PBR Safety Manager)
The attached letter went out to all ATHRA state delegates calling for submissions – see ONRSR Data Strategy Letter 15.6.2018
If you still wish to make a submission then contact Vicki ASAP for more information.
