TLI Rail Human Factors Project

Overview

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has commissioned the development of one new Skill Set for the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package. This Skill Set will address the need to manage human factors in rail safety work, network control, train operations and customer service.

Due to increasing automation in 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. This will include the development of:

  • 1 new Skill Set
  • 3 new Units of Competency

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.

This project commenced Wednesday, 20 June 2018.

Regular updates will be posted on this page throughout the life of the project.

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.
