Sacred Cows - Challenging Fundamental Safety Principles
Most of the UK transport systems are operating at or above capacity, what has been done to increase capacity has already been done, for example longer trains, managed motorways and efficient air traffic control on the air corridors around the UK. However, we still need more!

This evening seminar to be held on 12 May 2015 in London, will look at whether we would now start challenging what we could call "Fundamental Safety Principles" in these three industries and has been organized by the Aerospace, ARTS, Railway & Safety TPNs.
