Mysuru Division







Safety Branch, Mysuru Division

 

Safety Purpose

The Safety organization shares a common purpose in its drive towards increased reliability and availability of the rail system whilst seeking to continuously improve socially acceptable and reasonably practicable levels of safety. These are the very basic principles of sustainable development which seek to retain a holistic view and maintain risk in balance.

 There can never be zero risk and Safety organization's work is about helping the railway to consistently achieve a tolerable level of risk.

 Levels of Safety Organisation

The Safety Organization functions at all the three levels of organizational structure of the Indian Railways i.e. Railway Board at apex level, Zonal Railways at middle level and Divisions at bottom level.

At the Railway Board level the Safety directorate is headed by an Adviser assisted by Directors, other officers and Inspectors drawn from various disciplines.

 

At the Zonal Railway level the Chief Safety Officer (CSO) heads the Safety department assisted by officers and supervisory staff from other departments connected with Safety.

 

At the Divisional level, Safety department is headed by Senior Divisional Safety Officers. An assistant officer is also available in some divisions. Supervisory level staff from all concerned departments is available for providing assistance at Divisional level.
