CASE FOR CHANGE CONSULTATION
A Case for Change has been developed by the Rail IRC to develop two new Skill Sets.
Autonomous Trains and Rail Vehicles Skill Set
This Skill Set aims to address the Rail industry’s need for skilled workers required for the safe operation of autonomous trains and rail vehicles. The purpose of this project is to ensure that the integration of autonomous trains and rail vehicles do not cause safety issues on the rail system.
Human Factors Skill Set
This Skill Set aims to address the management of human factors for rail safety work, network control, train operations and customer service.
Due to the increased use of automation within the Rail industry, the development of skills pertaining to human factors will enhance public confidence in the safety of the Australian Rail network. Operators are required to deal with and manage the public ensuring their safety whilst on the rail network. Knowledge of human factors can be used to reduce the likelihood of errors, and build more error tolerant and more resilient systems, thereby increasing safety.
The Rail IRC is seeking public feedback on this proposed Training Package work.Download Case for Change
