ITA-COSUF – ITA Committee on Operational Safety of Underground Facilities
ITA-COSUF is the Centre of Excellence for world-wide exchange of information and know-how regarding safety and security of underground facilities. It is part of the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA) and is supported by PIARC, the World Road Association. ITA-COSUF covers all types of underground facilities and can therefore deal with overlaps and differences for instance between underground road and rail infrastructures. ITA-COSUF workshops are important means of communication; both internal workshops to exchange views with colleagues in a ‘safe environment’ as well as open workshops to share views and experience with the ‘outer world’. A large part of ITA-COSUF thinking and outputs relies on various Activity Groups.
