CIRAS is an independent, confidential safety reporting and analysis service which has been operating since 1996.

It offers a safety net that ensures that health and concerns are captured where they otherwise might be lost, or remain unaddressed. It provides the early warning to safety concerns that could potentially become near misses or incidents. With CIRAS’ help as an independent facilitator, the satisfactory resolution of these concerns is sought.

CIRAS offers a complementary, truly independent, confidential reporting line to a range of transport modes and infrastructure organisations. Staff can call knowing with complete confidence that their identity will never be revealed.  The aim is to exploit the opportunity to learn from every report received. Through an engagement programme, newsletters and website, the lessons learned and actions taken are shared with the membership facilitating improved safety culture.
