…give Network Rail, working in partnership with Rail Media, the opportunity to recognise organisations which are helping to deliver a better railway for a better Britain. The 2018 Rail Partnership Awards bring the supply chain together to celebrate the very best of 2017’s achievements in the rail industry. 14 awards are open for nominations and only their winners will be considered for the coveted Supplier of the Year Award, presented to the organisation that has, in the judges’ opinion, demonstrated excellence and best practice in all areas.
…have, since the early 1990s, been encouraging railway staff to reignite their long-held hopes of sporting glory and compete to be crowned the industry’s best. The RailSport Games tournament was established by the British Rail Staff Association and continues to this day with the help of many great volunteers. It has welcomed thousands of competitors from across the rail industry, participating in everything from cycling to rounders, darts to chess and football to rugby. As employers increasingly promote staff fitness, the RailSport Games are open to individuals and to company teams, both for serious competition and for the fun of participating.
…has brought rail safety professionals together for the last ten years. It provides a unique opportunity for them to network and discuss the latest concerns and developments while hearing from those involved with developing new systems to drive safety up and risk down. Academics and hand-on safety specialists learn from each other as no topic is too difficult for the panel to tackle.
…is part of the series of UK conferences and workshops designed to encourage those new to the industry, and those not so new, to develop their skills in bidding for and winning work. There is a vast opportunity for suppliers to secure new contracts, across both the existing network and new large-scale infrastructure projects, and these roadshows will help you pitch for that business.
…recognise the work that people do to go the extra mile for colleagues, passengers and the general public. They celebrates the success of individuals and teams and allows the industry to say “thank you” to those who make rail what it is today, from drivers to cleaners, engineers to station staff, back-office administrators to infrastructure maintainers. You can nominate your colleagues, whether they have saved a life, managed a large-scale project or just done their job particularly well this year, and send us stories of lives saved, careers turned around and adversity conquered. This recognition of our people in the national RailStaff Awards is the event of the year and one not to be missed.
…will offer the rail industry manufacturers and suppliers the chance to showcase their products and services as part of the huge multi-industry exhibition.
