Craig Waters, Editor of Eurotrasnport, speaks to Martin Giles, Managing Director of Lloyd’s Register’s UK rail business…

Lloyd’s Register has recently been appointed as the ISA for the new light-rail project in Aarhus. What exactly will Lloyd’s Register’s responsibility be for this role?

First of all, from a Lloyd’s Register viewpoint, there are two or three different ways of working as an Independent Safety Assessor (ISA); we can sit back and wait for the suppliers and system developers of a project to do all their work before we start to do our job, or we can stick by our ethos which is to join a project right at the start, that means we can provide advice and guidance as early as possible which helps us to gain efficiencies and prevent costly changes and delays later on in the project. This is how we are working for the Aarhus light-rail project.

Our duties and roles here include developing the safety assessments and audits of the plans, processes and documents required throughout the design, manufacture, installation, testing and trial operations.
