ABSTRACT
The article is devoted to the problem of creating a system of security and risk management. Formulated in relation to the process of movement of trains:- factor of safety of the train - the probability of traversing the trains on a particular route without transfer of its movement in a dangerous condition; - a measure of risk of the transfer movement of the train in a dangerous state - transition probability of motion in a dangerous state when the movement of trains on a given route. The objectives of security and risk management are: to provide values of their indicators are not worse than normative, namely, the values of the performance security shall be not less than the normative, and the values of indicators of risk-not more than normative. Proposed functional framework and organizational structure for the management of safety and risks.
