Risk Management Maturity Model - RM3

Achieving excellence in health and safety risk management

The Risk Management Maturity Model (RM3) defines what excellent 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.

Although widely used in rail, (Office of Road and Rail (ORR) Inspectors use RM3 when assessing the effectiveness of duty holder risk management systems), RM3 can benefit many industries.

RM3 was originally published by ORR in 2011, since when the model has received wide acceptance by the rail industry both in ther UK and elsewhere as a means of demonstrating excellence in safety and risk management.

Since 2014, HSE has worked collaboratively with ORR to ensure that RM3 remains up-to-date and relevant. The most recent version was released in April 2019. More details can be found on ORR's RM3 page.
