Rail Safety Rail Safety Workers card


'RISI' training IS NOT a Rail Safety Worker Assessment.

'RISI' is the Rail Industry equivalent to the Construction Industry Induction 'White Card'.

Many business and Rail Safety Workers have made an assumption that because the 'RISI' card is titled RAIL SAFETY WORKER CARD that they have been assessed as competent Rail Safety Workers.

This assumption now means many businesses and Rail Safety Workers are in breach of the Rail Safety National Law (NSW) 2012 in that they have not compied with legistlation and been assessed as competent for their roles.

"Do I have a Rail Safety Worker ASSESSMENT Card?"
YES: No further action
NO: I need more information
