Call for Development Group Members – Guideline on Good Practice in the Management of Rail Driver Health & Wellness

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a RISSB Development Group to draft a Guideline on Good Practice in the Management of Rail Driver Health & Wellness.


The objective of this Guideline is to provide guidance in the form of current good practice for managing the health and wellness of rail drivers. This Guideline will be developed to support the existing National Health Standard framework, and in doing so, create an urgent first step in coordinating industry’s efforts in promoting the health and wellness of rail drivers.

How to contribute

While there is a significant body of contemporary work that will form a basis for this Guideline, stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join this Development Group to contribute to its overall depth and quality.

DG membership is voluntary and requires the support of your organisation to attend and contribute. There will be 4 meetings over the development period – 2 face-to-face (expected in August and October) and 2 teleconferences (November and December). Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB website.

All nominations and enquiries are to be submitted to jbaker@rissb.com.au

As part of your nomination, can you please provide a brief detailing your contact details, your interest in this development (materially affected party, subject matter expert, etc.), and any other information which might support your participation.

Your information will assist us in ensuring a balanced representation from all major interest categories in the development of this document.

Closing date for nominations Tuesday, 31 July 2018.
