iESM - Rail Use Only?

The Engineering Safety Management (ESM) principles and techniques highlighted in the iESM Handbook are common and indeed applicable to a number of other safety related industries, especially as rail engineering safety management has evolved over the years incorporating learning from other industries such as Aerospace and Defence. There is therefore no foreseeable reason why iESM could not be applied to other transportation industries, with the caveat that common sense and engineering knowledge will need to be applied in its use to take into account the specific requirements of the industry concerned.
