The annual RTAA Dinner was historically called the No Tie Dinner. To align more with our Key Priorities in making rail more inclusive and diverse, the RTAA has decided to rename the dinner from the No Tie Dinner to the RTAA Annual Dinner.
In a ‘non’ Field Day year, the RTAA Annual Dinner is held in August.
The RTAA Dinner is renowned for being an informal and relaxed evening. It provides an opportunity for rail friends and colleagues to meet and share stories over a good meal, accompanied by Australian wines.
The RTAA’s Australasian Rail Diversity Award winner is announced at the event.

Safety: A top Priority for Rail Workers Rail Industry Guide to Safety 2018/19 – Released
It is essential that all rail workers understand their duties for safety; if the correct safety procedures aren’t implemented penalties may apply. Key requirements under rail safety regulations mean that rail transport employers are obligated to manage risks that ensure the safety of their workers. By providing proper training, employers ensure that the number of risks workers face each day are minimised or eliminated.
Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with Rail Track Association of Australia (RTAA), the Australian Rail Track Corporation and the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator (ONRSR), has released the latest edition of the Rail Industry Guide to Workplace Safety, highlighting some of the key responsibilities and requirements towards health and safety – this year with interactive Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities as an added feature.
The Guide covers a range of topics including:
- Rail Safety Regulations.
- Rail Corridor Safety.
- Road Rail Vehicles
- Rail Safety – Your Responsibilities.
- Rail Industry Trauma.
AR is an interactive feature on this year’s guide, creating a dynamic and engaging user experience. By simply downloading the free Pro-Vis AR app, users can scan any AR capable content using their smart device to access further digital safety resources to enhance their rail safety knowledge.
“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Rail Industry Guide to Safety 2018/19. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.”
