View schedule of upcoming training dates

Railsafe Systems can provide training and assessment to develop and maintain the competence of personnel involved in railway shunting in sidings and rail terminals or whose duties require them to work in or access the sidings whilst train movements are being made.

We can design and produce a rail operations manual to cover all the risks and characteristics at your site. The manual is normally issued to personnel during the course and forms an integral part of the training.

We also issue certificates of competence to all who successfully complete the training and assessment.

The training uses a combination of classroom presentations and practical sessions to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence of your employees. Written and practical assessments are carried out in accordance with your competence management requirements.
