SOCOTEC, the UK’s leading provider of testing, inspection and compliance services, is once again hosting the annual Railway Environmental Forum (REF) for 2019.

Serving as a leading industry event for environment, health and safety and compliance in the rail sector, the Railway Environmental Forum has been providing specialist guidance and expertise to rail professionals for over two decades.

Hosted by SOCOTEC’s industry experts, this year’s Forum will comprise a day of technical discussions on such topics as The Day-to-Day Management of Legionella, Asbestos Mishaps and How to Avoid Them, Welding, Grinding and Cutting and The Importance of Health and Safety Training.

These discussions will be held in an open, welcoming environment which promotes the circulation of knowledge and expertise among likeminded industry professionals, including managers in the facilities, safety and environmental standards sectors.

Noelyn Allen, business development director, Environment & Safety, SOCOTEC, commented: “With over 100 years’ experience in the rail industry, SOCOTEC is well versed in equipping professionals with the knowledge and expertise they need to comply with legislation and deliver the highest standards of practice in their profession.   


“We are delighted to be hosting the Railway Environmental Forum for another year and look forward to welcoming rail delegates from across the country to attend a full day of insightful discussions across a range of fields. It also serves as an ideal opportunity for delegates to network with likeminded professionals, sharing their take on health and safety guidelines and their importance within the rail sector.”

The Rail Environmental Forum is taking place on 14 November 2019 at the National Railway Museum, York. Lunch will be provided, and there will also be time for delegates to explore the museum itself.
