Safety of railway applications

Safety matters regarding the railway operation are based on a RAMS approach, consisting in two key documents: the safety case (European standard EN 50129) and the RAM demonstration (European standard EN 50126). These files are appropriate to railway applications: signaling, rolling stock and energy.

The safeness of systems and subsystems and of their integration is an ever-more sensitive issue, so that the RAM analysis of these requires an ever-more level of expertise.

GESTE Engineering can pretend to this level of expertise, as it covers both fields of RAMS and railway technic. As a matter of fact, the company is accredited by the French government (as an “OQA”, standing for “Organisme Qualifié Agréé”) to perform safety assessment of urban guided transport systems for the “control-command and signaling” subsystem.
