Duties of a designated person (DP) and people working on rail vehicles
You will need this module if you carry out the duties of a designated person or person working on a rail vehicle.
Summary Of Changes
Section 3.6 has been amended to make it clear who is responsible for removing vehicle protection. The wording has been altered to state that the last person working on a rail vehicle to remove personal identification must ask the DP whether it is now safe to remove the vehicle protection.
A requirement has been added at section 4.3 to state that when working on a vehicle, to inform station staff if no driver or guard is present both before starting work and on completion, as station staff can also influence the movement of a train.
A new section 8 has been added to describe how the DP obtains line protection in all situations when work is to take place on a vehicle that is on a running line or siding under possession.
