Risk Management Maturity Model (RM3)

RM3 defines what excellence in risk management looks like and allows organisations to assure themselves that their risk management system is operating to an adequate standard. The model provides a route map to help them continuously improve towards excellence in health and safety management.

It is widely used in the rail and other industries and is the tool used by ORR Inspectors and duty-holders to determine the effectiveness of the duty-holders health and safety management systems.

We first published RM3 in 2011 and released the latest version in June 2017:

RM3 2019

Together with industry partners on the RM3 Governance Board, we are working to improve the model under our RM3 2019 project. We are expanding the typical evidence you might see, including how organisations collaborate, and strengthening the organisational culture evidence against the 5 maturity levels for each criteria.

RSSB is represented at the Governance Board and their focus is supporting their members and the wider industry with tools and training. We want to make sure that these tools meet RM3 user needs. Please complete our survey.
