National Standard for Health Assessment of Rail Safety Workers: past reviews & amendments

Reviews

The National Standard for Health Assessment of Rail Safety Workers (2012) (the Standard) is currently being reviewed to assess that all medical information is current and up-to-date, and reflects the needs for a safe working environment for the rail industry.

We published an issues paper and accepted advice from stakeholders including the medical community, industry groups and associations, rail operators and employees, unions, regulators and transport departments. This will form the basis for discussion and inform any changes that may be required to the next edition of the Standard.
