Respiratory standard

To enable a sustainable approach to the management of the long term health and wellbeing of our employees, and achieve our vision of Everyone Home safe Every day, Network Rail has published a standard to support the proactive management of employees’ respiratory health.

The purpose of this standard is to highlight the importance of identifying employees at risk of exposure to respiratory hazards, and supporting the proactive management of employees’ health; specifically those health risks associated with silica and asbestos.

The following resources have been made available to support the introduction of the new standard; ‘Health surveillance for silica and asbestos and the management of diagnosed occupational respiratory conditions’ (NR/L2/OHS/157)
