Lookout Working Prohibited Locations Register

A new Lookout Working Prohibited Locations Register replaces the Worksite Protection Hazardous Locations Register published on RailSafe.

The old Worksite Protection Hazardous Locations Register listed locations with various hazards such as inadequate sighting distance, no safe place, and access/egress hazards.

The extensive database made it difficult for staff to plan and assess worksite protection requirements.

The new Lookout Working Prohibited Locations Register is simplified to show the locations strictly prohibited for Lookout Working.

This supports Worksite Supervisors and Protection Officers in assessing worksite protection requirements and opt for an alternative higher level of protection when working at the prohibited locations.

The new Lookout Working Prohibited Locations Register will be released on 30 March 2020 and published on the RailSafe Website .
