This research documents lessons learned from the development of the Railroad Information Sharing Environment (RISE), a voluntary partnership for sharing safety sensitive information among multiple railroad industry stakeholders for the purpose of identifying, evaluating, and managing safety risks. RISE provides a secure platform for sharing safety sensitive information using a trusted third party or steward. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) conducted a demonstration project to test the feasibility and challenges of standing up a process by which the railroad industry stakeholders could share safety sensitive information in an aggregated form that provide a new way for managing safety.
