RAIL Safety Management

Project scope

 

The purpose of this project is to review and amalgamate the Certificate IV in Rail Safety Management and Certificate IV in Rail Investigation, develop two new Units of Competency and review associated units to ensure the skills and knowledge requirements contained in the qualification address changes in technology and national rail network standards, including safety regulations associated with the role of rail safety management.

 

The industry is experiencing rapid infrastructure growth and investment that requires skills development to ensure our networks remain safe for traditional rail traffic, autonomous rail and the community. The workforce needs to continuously develop technical and behavioural capabilities for the management of rail safety. This includes prevention and risk management mitigation capabilities in a digitally evolved environment. Quality incident management requires incident investigation skills, as well as digital literacy, and people management skills.

 

The existing Units of Competency will be updated to include industry’s current practices.

 

VIEW CASE FOR CHANGE

 

The Rail Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed for this project.

 

If you have any questions about this project or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Skills Manager.

 

Timeline

 

The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by 30 July 2022.

TAC Established

 

7 SEPTEMBER 2021

 

The Rail Industry Reference Committee has established a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for this project.

 

Comprising 14 of subject matter experts from Industry, RTOs, regulators, associations, unions, the TAC has been tasked with:

  • Providing specialist industry subject-matter knowledge regarding the management of rail safety – to review and amalgamate the Certificate IV in Rail Safety Management and Certificate IV in Rail Investigation, develop two new Units of Competency and review associated units to ensure the skills and knowledge requirements contained in the qualification address national rail network standards.
  • Validating the technical content of the Training Package products
  • Identifying relevant qualitative and quantitative data sources to inform the development of draft materials
  • Reviewing feedback from stakeholders through public consultations
  • Assisting in identifying and engaging broader industry networks to participate in consultation and/or validation activities during the duration of the project
  • Offering advice and guidance to assist in informing the direction of the project throughout its duration.
  • Making recommendations on the developed Training Package materials to the relevant IRC, which has the final decision-making authority

 

The first meeting of the TAC is scheduled for 29 September 2021.

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS NEEDED

 

Work on this project has commenced and the Rail IRC is forming a TAC.

 

Your industry expertise and insight is welcome to help review and develop Training Package materials to review and amalgamate the Certificate IV in Rail Safety Management and Certificate IV in Rail Investigation, develop two new Units of Competency and review associated units.

 

Registrations closed Friday, 27 August 2021.

 

 

Consultation

8 FEBRUARY 2022

DRAFT MATERIAL

 

On behalf of the Rail Industry Reference Committee, the TAC has drafted materials for this project and is requesting stakeholder feedback. 

 

The TAC has reviewed and updated the Certificate IV in Rail Safety Management and Certificate IV in Rail Investigation and 15 associated Units of Competency. 

 

These draft products address changes in technology and national rail network standards, prevention and risk management mitigation capabilities, including safety regulations associated with the role of rail safety management or investigation. This will help ensure our networks remain safe for traditional rail traffic, autonomous rail and the community. 

 

Feedback closed Monday, 7 March 2022.

 

Feedback will be collated and discussed at the next TAC meeting.

Quality Assurance

21 JUNE 2022

FINAL DRAFT CASE FOR ENDORSEMENT

 

The draft Training Package materials, including updates to two Certificate IV qualifications and 15 associated Units of Competency, have undergone independent edit and quality assurance.  

 

  The products address changes in technology and rail network standards, prevention and risk management mitigation capabilities, including safety regulations associated with the role of rail safety management or investigation.

FINAL DRAFT MATERIAL

 

On behalf of the Rail Industry Reference Committee, its Technical Advisory Committee has considered all stakeholder feedback and is now seeking validation of revised draft materials including two Certificate IV qualifications and 15 associated Units of Competency. The TAC amalgamated two units and deleted two units. No new units were developed in this project.

 

These draft materials address technical and behavioural capabilities for the management of rail safety. This includes prevention and risk management mitigation capabilities, quality incident management and incident investigation skills.

 

Feedback closed Monday, 28 March 2022.

 

Feedback will be collated and discussed at the next TAC meeting.
