Thank you for your recent enquiry to join CIRAS.

CIRAS is a confidential reporting service allowing your staff to be able to report any health or safety concern in complete confidence. CIRAS provides a complimentary channel for staff to use, that is independent from any of our subscribing organisations. We do not seek to replace or compete against your internal reporting systems.

Staff have been reporting safety concerns to us for a long time now and in addition to being able to help resolve the issue, we are in a unique position to be able to analyse the data and share intelligence and learning opportunities with our members.

CIRAS is a service wholly funded by our members. We are a not-for-profit organisation and are overseen by an independent governance Committee who are responsible for ensuring membership fees are fair and transparent. We use rail (for sentinel supply chain) or company turnover as the fairest basis for determining each member company’s levy. 

Information for Sentinel supply chain
All Sentinel (trackside/on or near the line) sponsors are required to become direct subscribers to a confidential reporting scheme from 1st April 2015.  Network Rail and Transport for London have taken this decision to provide an outlet for any individual who is working in the rail industry to confidentially report a safety or health concern. Individuals can come to CIRAS if they feel unable to use company internal reporting routes or if they have done so and felt that their concern was not adequately addressed. 
Membership fees 2018/19
Listed below are the nine turnover ranges, with the corresponding levy:
 Band Company turnover / Rail turnover for sentinel companies  Full year (excluding VAT)
