A wider safety perspective

In the Stockholm City Line rail tunnel project there are a lot of risks present. This paper refers to how risks in the operational phase, when trains are running, could be addressed when the perspective is widened. A wider perspective is achieved by going a step further than just applying regulations and standards, and copying earlier projects. Probably the most important aspect is to find out the purpose and background of rules and legislation etc., and how they should be applied to the specific project. Other important factors are being updated on new hazards and threats, taking in new experience collected from accidents as well as collecting results from new research. A wider perspective could also be applied inside the project by interacting more to achieve safety systems that are reliable and will function when the tunnel is in operation. In the paper some examples will be presented from the City Line project, but also examples from other tunnels (A). For the covering abstract of the conference se ITRD E216860.
