Anyone who is required to work "on or near the line" (within 3m of the nearest rail normally or 1.25m of a station platform edge) is required to be qualified in PTS. This includes lines that are either not electrified or have Overhead Line Electrification (OLE). Lines electrified by DC Conductor Rails (commonly referred to as either 3rd or 4th rails) also require PTS DCCR training.
Your Sentinel Track Safety card takes approximately 10 working days to arrive and will be ordered and received by your sponsor. We will issue a work experience log book in which to record your on-track experience. This will help your sponsor determine when you no longer need learner support. Workers in learning support are required to wear a blue safety helmet (hard hat).
