Revised 019 Standard 2017 Briefings

Posted in Communications

As of April 2017, The Planning and Delivering Safe Work programme made a change to the way we approach the management and planning ofwork. Fundamentally, there will be one person accountable for managing task and operational safety risk and that person will have been involved in the planning of the work. This will deliver better managed, safer workplaces for everyone working on the railway.

The first part of the programme involves the introduction of a revised 019 Standard – Safety of People at work on or near the line.
This Standard will introduce:

  • A person in charge: Accountable for safely delivering the work
  • Involvement in planning: The person in charge will collaborate with the planner to produce a Safe Work Pack (SWP)
  • Task risk: A Safe Work Pack (SWP) will provide clearinformation such as task and site risk assessments so the person
    in charge can effectively manage all the risks.

Details of how to record briefings on Sentinel  can be found here.
The 019 Briefing Materials are available on Safety Central, and you can also download and use our 019 communications toolkit
