Extension of TfNSW job roles due to COVID-19 for companies
Extension of TfNSW job roles due to COVID-19
In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, TfNSW has decided to suspend some face-to-face training to protect the health and well-being of staff as part of their COVID-19 precautions and response. As such they have authorised the Rail Industry Worker Program to extend the expiry dates of the following TfNSW job roles to 31 March 2021 for any person who currently holds:
- TfNSW Worksite Protection Officer 1
- TfNSW Worksite Protection Officer 2
- TfNSW Worksite Protection Officer 3
- TfNSW Worksite Protection Officer 4
- TfNSW Handsignalling Class 1
- TfNSW Handsignalling Class 2
This will be achieved by uploading a temporary competency to the job role with a new expiry date of 31 March 2021. This will mean the job role remains valid until that expiry. However, as a result of doing this, the initial competency for this job role will display as expired.
Below is an example of what an Employer Administrator may see in the Expiries tab in the RIW System:
And an example of what you may see on the cardholders’ profile:
When training is made available again, cardholders and employers will be notified.
Note: We are aware that there could be a potential impact on those who hold equivalent ARTC or CRN roles, but discussions are occurring with these Networks and they will provide further information in due course.
