The Track Safety Alliance (TSA) is an industry wide group which was formed in 2011 to allow a number of companies across the industry to develop and share best practice. This is largely focused on the improvement of health, safety and wellbeing of track workers.
During planned renewal of an OLE wire run, it was discovered that the planned methodology was unable to be applied. Following review by the site management the decision was made to
revert to the contingency plan to manually dewire.
A re-brief of the manual methodology and theassociated hazards and controls was undertaken
and the work re-commenced.
