Sentinel Scheme Rules

Posted in Rules

The Sentinel Board has endorsed more rigour to promote and enforce compliance with the Sentinel Scheme Rules including, where necessary, removing the right of sponsors to provide staff to work on Network Rail’s managed infrastructure.

The Sentinel Scheme Rules were put in place to ensure the safety of Individuals and Sponsors who work on Network Rail’s managed infrastructure. One of the principles in the Sentinel Scheme Rules is that each Sponsor has the same obligations as an employer in health and safety law for every worker that the primary sponsor.

Please ensure this letter is cascaded through your organisation.
