Call For Public Consultation – Safety Critical Operational Information Code of Practice

The Safety critical operational information Code of Practice is now available for a 4-week public consultation.

This Code specifically addresses operational information that is provided to rail safety workers (RSW), in particular train crew, track workers, protection officers, network control officers and other operational personnel. Other workers such as supervisors, planners, etc may also use this information, however in this context it is information that is primarily required by workers in front facing railway operational roles.

This Code covers documented safety critical operational information (the content and context of the information) and is largely focused on the collection, collation, and dissemination of SCOI. Verbal transmission of SCOI is covered in the RISSB Safety Critical Communication Code of Practice.
