Accessing the Rail Corridor

Accessing the rail corridor is often a complex and time consuming necessity for your works.
At some work locations you may be required to deal with up to eight different rail authorities.
The access regime is often complicated due to the amount of documentation required and may delay the start or, progress of your works.
We take the hard work out of gaining access with our innovative management systems.
Rail Safety Planning
All works in the rail corridor require some degree of planning.
Depending on the location of your works there is often a requirement for the provision of significant planning to ensure the risk to the rail operator is at an acceptable level, there will be minimal disruption to train services and no interruption to critical infrastructure.
We will take the hard work out of planning providing all your documents and information.
Independent review of rail safety staffing levels
Work on the railways often requires to be undertaken during times trains are operating. Rail safety workers must be on site to protect the work-site from passing trains.
Rail safety workers are generally provided through employment agencies offering a package of rail safety management, planning and labour hire.
Labour hire companies often overload the hire of rail safety workers increasing the cost to your company.
This cost often is measure in tens of thousands of dollars.
We provide an independent review of all Safeworking plans provided by labour companies. Our independent review of staffing levels with acceptable alternatives regularly save our clients tens of thousands of dollars over the life of the project.
High level safety Management
Some works in the rail corridor are by definition high risk to commercial and safety issues at the work-site.
Those risks are best managed by a person qualified at the highest level of safety management, Rail Safeworking Inspector (Level 12).
Normally in the rail industry the person in-charge of your work-site is a level 3 Safeworking Coordinator.
A level 3 only requires 200 hours experience in the rail industry to run your work-site. Do not leave the safety and productivity of your work-site to a person who has a very limited knowledge of the rail safety and risk environment.
We provide high level management Rail Safeworking Inspector (Level 12) only when required at critical stages of the project.
Rail Safety Risk Assessments Rail safety operational impact statements
Work in the rail corridor often requires documentation unique to the rail industry.
The safety and commercial risk in the rail industries are not in any other industry.
To control those risks and provide a safe work place you must provide to the rail corridor manager a number of comprehensive rail risk assessments and operational impact statements
Your assessments must demonstrate how you will control all safety risks including workers coming into contact with passing rail traffic. You must also demonstrate that your works will not cause delays to the rail traffic.
As we have all read in the press about delays to train services the rail companies place an extremely high priority on delays. A delay to one train may cause dozens of delays to other trains at junction stations.
This may cost your company hundreds of thousands of dollars in penalties.
To take the worry out of your planning we will provide all your rail safety risk and operational documents.
