Work Place Safety: Don’t go off the Rails - Rail Industry Guide to Safety 2018 – Released

Thursday 01, Mar 2018

Feeling sleepy? Not functioning as well as you usually would? These could be signs of mental or physical fatigue. It may be surprising, but fatigue is four times more likely to contribute to workplace impairment than drugs or alcohol. Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with The Rail Track Association of Australia (RTAA) and the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator (ONRSR), has released the latest interactive edition of the Rail Industry Guide to Workplace Safety, to help raise awareness and curb the issue of fatigue and other issues rail workers are presented with on a daily basis.   

This year’s Guide not only provides solid guidelines on driver fatigue and management, it also offers information on drug and alcohol management and testing types, as well as safe work on tracks. This information is crucial to transport operators in maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for their workers.

A distinctive aspect of the Guide involves Augmented Reality (AR), an interactive digital feature that contributes to workers and management engaging and retaining information on a whole new level. By simply downloading the free Pro-Vis AR app, workers in the Rail Industry can use their smart device to gain access to further resources, adding to their interactive experience of staying safe in the workplace.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Rail Industry Guide to Safety 2018. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.”
