In the risk management project of 2015, the Institute of Transportation analyzed the risk of derailment hazard in the Alishan Forest Railway. Many mitigation strategies had been proposed, and the quality management methods were adopted to transition the mitigations to be standardized, documented, and have established protocols.
This study will follow the accomplishments in previous projects, use the Alishan Forest Railway as a case study, and transition more hazard mitigations to be standardized, documented, and have established protocols. It will be helpful for the railway operators to implement the activity-based safety management. The expected accomplishments of this study are: (1) reviewing the practical implementations of derailment mitigations proposed in the 2015 project, including standardization/documentation/protocol establishment, and then suggesting the improvement strategies; (2) selecting and analyzing more critical hazards, and transitioning the relevant mitigations to be standardized, documented, and have established protocol; (3) taking the Alishan Forest Railway as a case study to develop hierarchical safety performance indicators, including leading indicators and lagging indicators, and evaluating the performance of the mitigations accordingly; (4) surveying safety management system and building the proper architecture as well as content for domestic railway operators.
