Track Safety Awareness (RISI)

 

What is Safely Access the Rail Corridor Training?

(Formally known as Track Safety Awareness, One Track, RISI)

Safely Access the Rail Corridor Training is the minimum industry standard for employees and contractors participating in work activity within the various rail

corridors in Australia. Each of the track owners who manage rail traffic movements in  Australia have defined the minimum training and  health standards for their own employees and for contractors who need to work in the rail corridor.

Upon successful completion of the training, the participant will receive a Statement of Attainment from The Instruction Company. The Statement of Attainment does not entitle the holder to enter any rail corridor. You must apply for and receive a Rail Industry Worker Card to access any rail corridor. Rail Industry Worker Cards are processed by RIW.  http://railindustryworker.com.au

Please note that a Rail Industry Worker Card:

  • May not be transportable and or recognised when working within another track owner's rail corridor?
