GERT8000-G1 Iss 8

General safety responsibilities and personal track safety for non-track workers

Synopsis

You will need this module if you carry out the duties of a train driver, guard, shunter, designated person (DP), signaller, crossing keeper, or platform staff.

Summary Of Changes

Clearer instructions have been introduced at section 1.8 and section 3 for dealing with damage to structures or earthworks, and any unusual flows or
pools of water that could cause damage. Existing sections 1.8, 1.9 and 1.10 have been renumbered but their contents are not changed, except that
the title of the new section 1.10 has been slightly changed in the interests of clarity.

As a result of the withdrawal of the Working Manual for Rail Staff Handling and Carriage of Dangerous Goods (GORT3053), the instructions from
there concerning anyone being contaminated by dangerous goods following an accident, which could apply to anyone holding this module have been
added to section 4.4.

Briefing videos of the changes to rules can be found on the rssb.co.uk website
