"This study examines the safety implications of the liberalisation of access to and privatisation of British Railways (BR). The report makes various recommendations for an enhanced regulatory and rail safety management system against the background of the continuing responsibility of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which incorporates HM Railway Inspectorate (HMRI). for the statutory regulation of safety on Britain's railways. Whatever arrangements are eventually adopted to enable railway undertakings to manage safety in a satisfactory manner, no aspect will be exempt from the independent scrutiny of HSE, acting as the public watchdog."
