A risk/benefit assessment of delayed action, relative to present practice, is developed and carried out to compare the risk of rail failure due to incorrect classification of defect size with the benefit of rail failure prevention due to increased opportunity to detect large defects.

Risk Assessment Working in a rail yard whether there is moving equipment involved or it is a static operation is quite safe as long as the personnel involved are well trained and can demonstrate they can perform their tasks the right way following regulations and safe work procedures.

Dynamic Risk Assessment on the railway Dynamic Risk Assessment (DRA) is a safety tool, designed to support Network Rail in making safety decisions. It is used when there are unexpected or unpredicted situations where a team of competent people have to make a decision to protect safety.
