In a dynamically changing risk environment, Proscient offers integrated visibility of the impact of each activity.

“We need to approach railway safety at a European Level from a fresh perspective; one that incorporates the best of safety thinking from other industries.” Christopher CARR, Head of Safety Unit, European Railways Agency – Railways Safety Performance in the EU 2014

“Experience shows that the thorough implementation of a safety management system, underpinned by a genuine safety culture within a railway undertaking, is key to unlocking future safety improvements.” Railways Safety Performance in the EU 2014

The priority of safety

As rail aims to be the transport solution of choice for both freight and people, good safety performance will remain a primary focus for the industry. We all know that good safety is good for business, so the challenge we face is ensuring thorough implementation of the safety management system, underpinned by a genuine safety culture.

The dynamic risk landscape

Your operational risk landscape changes as fast as your operational reality. Different risks are often managed in different parts of your organisation. Bringing them all together to see their impact on the operational reality of your infrastructure is the real challenge.

The importance of joined-up safety decisions

Improving operational safety has to start with being able to make decisions from a common starting point. Everyone needs to be able to assess risk and plans safety by the same criteria and have a practical understanding of the direct and indirect effects their decisions can have.

Proscient: three screens, one operational reality

Now it’s possible to see and manage risk right across the organisation – with Proscient, the world’s first software platform for Operational Excellence.

On three simple screens, everyone can see exactly what’s happening, where, and when. You can even simulate the risk associated with a particular activity – or with a lack of action.

Silos are removed: the software creates a common currency of risk that allows everyone to understand and assess risk by the same criteria, and see its cumulative impact on the operational reality of the plan. You can see the health of your safety management system, and its impact on your planned and current activities, and vice versa. Proscient enables you to connect system safety to personal safety and its impact on operations, so your entire organisation can make better operational decisions and proactively intervene to prevent accidents and avoid traffic disruptions.

By integrating Operational Excellence into your safety culture and the way you work, you can:

  • Improve safety performance
  • Reduce workforce fatalities and injuries
  • Proactively maintain the integrity of the Safety Management system
  • Provide better evidence of improvement to regulators and other key stakeholders
  • Standardise risk assessment and awareness within the workforce
  • Improve the reliability of system safety
  • Improve the business risk management capabilities to increase line of sight to frontline

  • Process Safety Management is now connected to its impact on operations – so everyone can make better operational decisions.

  • Better operational decisions are creating measurable efficiencies – and improving my leading risk indicators.

  • "Process safety became part of the vernacular of the energy business… However, it has also led to a reduction in responsibility and understanding of operational risk by operations staff… In other words, operational risk has come to mean process safety and has been separated from operational performance as a whole, with the former managed by safety professionals and the latter by operational professionals."
