General duties of a controller of site safety (COSS)
This handbook is for those personnel who have the general duties of a controller of site safety (COSS).
Summary Of Changes
New instructions have been added at section 2.3 to facilitate the introduction of the crossing the line procedure into the Rule Book. The changes are intended to streamline the procedure for crossing the line leading to reduced workload for signaller/SWL/COSS/IWA, reduced need for staff to be waiting unproductively trackside ,and crossing the line at locations that have already been assessed as suitable. Sections 3.3 and 4.4 have been revised to facilitate the introduction of high output protection zones into the Rule Book. The introduction of high output protection zones into the Rule Book is intended to improve track worker safety by removing the need for possession support staff to go trackside to place standard possession protection, and to result in improved productivity on each occasion that a high output train is used.
