Our Managing Director, Allison McDonald, spoke at the RSSB’s Seventh International Human Factors Rail Conference earlier this week, sharing her ideas and predictions for the future of rail technology and training systems.

The SystemiQ team is looking forward to sharing more of its human factors experience when we launch our range of human factors courses over the coming months, designed to help support effective performance in safety-critical industries.  Visit our SystemiQ Academy page to learn more:

RiSSB Rail Safety conference

SystemiQ was thrilled to be involved in the recent RiSSB Rail Safety conference in Sydney, which was successfully run as a hybrid online and onsite conference. There was a diverse range of presentations, covering safety innovation, fatigue management, asset management, safety culture and track worker safety. SystemiQ’s Allison McDonald presented alongside some other great speakers in the safety culture stream, where presenters discussed systems-focused approaches to safety culture, as a key component of organisational culture.


Re-thinking Competency Based Training

“In November, SystemiQ’s Allison McDonald delivered a presentation at the International Railway Safety Conference in Perth.  The conference theme was “Innovation and Technology: Changing the Future of Rail Safety”, and presenters discussed new rail technology, the emerging challenges of human-system integration in automated systems, and how to build skills and competence in a more automated industry.  Allison’s paper, “Re-thinking Competency Based Training” focused on the development of underlying competencies, and needs-based, data-driven training to develop resilient performance among future safety-critical workers.”
