The suite of learning materials provided here are for the following safety critical roles:

  • Dispatch staff
  • Fitters and engineers
  • Train controllers
  • Guards (on-train staff)
  • Shunters

The learning material is specific to each role and can be integrated into formal NTS training programmes or used in isolation as part of refresher days and routine safety briefings. 

For each role, four operational tasks were identified on which to base the learning materials. These are not necessarily safety critical tasks, but rather tasks commonly undertaken and suitable for basing the learning materials around. 

The materials can be used as part of training and refresher training, safety days, engagement days, safety briefs and/or any other suitable learning and development activity.
