Reminder of Sentinel Scheme Rule 5.2

Posted in Communications

Sponsors are reminded that following an alleged breach of the Sentinel Scheme Rules by an individual they primary sponsor, they must submit a Local Investigation report containing the recommended Fair Culture outcome and a statement from the individual concerned to SentinelInvestigations@networkrail.co.uk.

The report will then be considered by the Formal Review Panel and the Sentinel Scheme Outcome communicated to the Primary Sponsor.

If the incident occurred whilst under sub-sponsorship then the Sub Sponsor must assist the Primary Sponsor with the investigation.

Rule 5.2 also states that individuals cannot be de-sponsored whilst under investigation.  De-sponsoring an individual before the Formal Review Panel have made their decision regarding a Sentinel Scheme Outcome, enables a potentially unsafe individual to resume working on the infrastructure.

Thank you for your co-operation
