Guidance on Operational Railway Safety Awareness
This document is aimed at Railway Undertakings and any other railway actors operating in or around the railway environment. It gives guidance on operational railway safety awareness, setting out the risks, hazards and control measures to be considered in training. It also includes a framework for competence review and assessment.
Summary Of Changes
The objective associated with this change is to harmonise training and competence for railway undertakings' operational railway safety awareness. There is no existing common-training and competence approach associated with personal track safety for railway undertakings available to the industry.
The introduction of a common operational railway safety awareness competence framework can contribute to reducing the risk of harm to those working in the GB rail sector, including those working away from the GB mainline railway, for example, in depots, yards, sidings, and freight terminals.
Over the course of five years, the benefits will total £2,445,665.
