RailRisk Capabilities

RailRiskTM – Incident Reporting System Capabilities:

  • Provides mechanism to capture information associated with a safety-relevant defect, failure or incident encountered on a PTC system.
  • Supports evaluation of the safety-relevant defect, failure and incident to help reduce risk and track resolution status.
  • Supports review and update of common hazards as previously identified in relevant hazards analyses. This can accommodate updates to/from Wabtec and vendor-neutral hazard analyses
  • Supports determination of the frequency of a safety-relevant defect, failure or incident and if it exceeds the threshold set forth in the railroad-specific PTCSP

Due to all of the mentioned facts above the Federal Railway Administration endorses RailRiskTM Incident Reporting System as the solution for tracking hazardous failures of PTC systems.
