General duties and track safety for track workers

Synopsis

This handbook is for those personnel who need to go on the operational railway to carry out their duties, with the exception of a train driver, guard, shunter, signaller, crossing keeper or designated person (DP).

Summary Of Changes

The definition of 'lineside' has been simplified in section 1, but there is no change to any requirements associated with this term. A new series of definitions of 'positions on or near the line' has been added in the same section, and diagram HB1.1 now shows 'cess' as an additional term. A new definition has been included for semi-automatic track warning system (SATWS). 

Section 5.6 has been renamed, as it now includes a reference to a semi-automatic track warning system (SATWS).
