RIW Business Rules provide the minimum acceptance criteria for the verification of competence across program participants.
To ensure that the RIW Program is fit for purpose and guided by industry, a governance committee was established comprising rail operators, track owners and rail contractors. The National Rail Industry Worker Governance Committee (NRIWGC) includes safety managers, competency managers, training managers and other professionals working for Accredited Rail Operators and Rail Contractor Representatives. The NRIWGC is responsible for standardising roles across the rail industry by developing and reviewing the national role matrices. Where a Rail Operator still requires specific network roles and competencies, these are developed by the individual Rail Operator and form part of their network role matrices. In addition, both Rail Operators and Contractor Representatives also have the responsibility to develop employer-based roles and competencies, listing the specific requirements to hold the relevant roles.
Business Rules have been developed to provide further consistency and an agreed minimum acceptance criteria for the verification of competence across program participants. These underlying business rules provide guidance to the RIW Program Service Desk.
