Worksite Protection Hazardous Locations

Sydney Trains is currently in a three phase process of developing an improved Hazardous Rail Corridor Locations Register to help users find and report hazardous locations across the rail network.

Phase 1 has been completed, which has divided the register into two (2) parts. The first register is called the Worksite Protection Hazardous Locations Register and, as the name suggests, deals with hazards relating only to worksite protection within the danger zone.

A second register, called the Hazardous Rail Corridor Locations (Other), deals with rail corridor hazards outside the danger zone, such as environmental and workplace health and safety issues. This register can be located at the Safety website, and is readily available to Sydney Trains and NSW Trains employees. Contractors engaged in activities for these organisations who require access to this register need to organise authorisation for access to the Safety website through their contract manager.

The Worksite Protection Hazardous Locations Register is available by clicking the link above, and is available in a Portable Display Format (PDF) as well as a static Excel Spreadsheet. The PDF and Excel version is linked to an interactive map where users can click on a specific location, which takes them to the relevant part of the register for that location. As this register is now live and can be updated at anytime, printing of the register for later reference is discouraged. Users should refer to the register on the website each time they need to for the most up to date and relevant information available.

A new reporting form is now available on this website also. Rail Safety Coaches, Protection Officers and any other workers who utilise the register/s and feel that these need to be updated due to changes in the area of concern, are encouraged to submit these changes, or report new hazards, via this form. The updating of current information will form part of Phase 2 of this project, and brings a better and more user-friendly and accurate Worksite Protection Hazardous Corridor Locations register.
