About the Course
This course provides engineers, managers and others involved in Rail safety-related projects with a detailed understanding of the fundamentals of EDSM supported by competency-based structure.
The opening module provides background to EDSM and a brief overview of its application in the railway drawing upon best practice. The following modules introduce a number of EDSM fundamentals and the approach suggested by good practice and standards for putting them into place.
Comprehensive guidance on implementing safe work systems in the railway is provided and all participants will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience of the main techniques involved.
The course content is mapped to:
– Industry standard competencies, skills and evidence requirements relevant to rail safety work
– Industry regulations
– Australian and international standards
Information is interspersed with practical exercises. There is a short multiple-choice examination at the end to assess the identified learning outcomes.
Who Should Attend?
Any member of staff – decision makers, project managers, line managers, engineers, designers and others – involved with changes to the railway need an understanding of the latest best practice.
