RISI requirements move to a new Network Standard
Network Rules and Procedures Certification standard
From Monday 15th August the Network Rules and Procedures Certification standard will be amended. The most significant amendment is the relocation of the existing section 10 Rail Industry Safety Induction to a new Network Standard NS-0923 Rail Industry Induction Standard RISI.
Other minor changes to the Network Rules and Procedures Certification standard include:
- Removing the process for issuing an interim RISI waiver pending the reinstatement of an RSW card following a Safeworking breach or Incident. This will now be done by electronically blocking specific qualifications in the RIW system or utilising the existing RISI waiver process for individuals.
- Minor changes to some position titles in the Standard
- Minor change to the process for the withdrawal of an RSW authorisations post a Safeworking incident, Safety breach or SPAD to clarify the removal of authorisations applies where the individual’s actions have, or are suspected of, contributing to the incident.
- TfNSW RSW cards removed from individuals will now be returned to the employees Line Manager.
NS-0923 Rail Industry Safety Induction (RISI)
From Monday 15th August a new Network Standard, NS-0923 Rail Industry Safety Induction (RISI) will be published.
Excepting the requirement for establishing a RISI exempt area, the existing requirements for RISI in the Sydney Trains network remain unchanged.
From 15 August 2022, applications for a RISI exempt area in the Sydney Train corridor need to satisfy the minimum requirements specified in the Network Standard.
To assist new applications a RISI exempt area review checklist has been developed. This checklist and any supporting documentation will need to be submitted to Sydney trains for review prior to establishing a RISI exempt area.
