Keep ahead of the workforce development curve through the establishment of standardised training for rail incident investigators

Dovan, Nathan, Banks, Tamara D., & Biggs, Herbert C. (2013) Keep ahead of the workforce development curve through the establishment of standardised training for rail incident investigators. In 10th World Congress on Railway Research, 25 - 28 of November 2013, Sydney, NSW. (Unpublished)

Abstract

The Australasian rail industry lacks a consistently accepted standard of minimal training necessary to perform rail incident investigations. Current Australasian courses do not offer the breadth of development required for a comprehensive career pathway in incident investigation (Biggs, Banks & Dovan, 2012; Short, Kains & Harris, 2010).

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
