Safer

Sentinel is a recognised safety system:

  • It is integrated with Network Rail’s Lifesaving Rules which state you should “never undertake any job unless you have been trained and assessed as competent”
  • It provides automatic alerts when cards have expired or the individual is suspended
  • It prevents unqualified individuals from working and causing danger on the railway infrastructure

Smarter

Sentinel is a smart system:

  • It utilizes smartphone technology to validate workforce competence and authority to work via a mobile application
  • It features a durable long-life card
  • It checks identity and skills in real-time

Simpler

Sentinel is a simple system:

  • It checks credentials in seconds and reflects changes instantly
  • It features one card per person – with all competences embedded and easily accessible via the printed QR code
  • It means there is less need for users to carry paper forms

Sentinel Scheme rules

The Sentinel Scheme rules were created for anyone involved in the system; they outline responsibilities, policies and breaches that must be adhered to. You can download the latest version (Version3, July 2018) of them here (PDF): View rules

Applying for a card

The Sentinel card (passport) is only available to workers employed by rail engineering companies, not the general public. It can only be purchased by your Sponsor: Further details
