Planning4Delivery (formerly Planning and Delivering Safe Work)

The Planning4Delivery programme (formerly PDSW) is aiming to address key issues affecting our frontline, to help reduce near misses and lost time accidents. To achieve this essential safety improvement, the business requires a step change in how we plan and deliver work on or near the line.

Through new technology, better information and enhancing the skills of our people the #p4d programme will help deliver a safer workplace for our staff and everyone working on the railway.

Standard 019 – Safety of people at work on or near the line.

On 2 March 2020, the Planning4Delivery programme (formerly PDSW) launched the 019 Principles video briefing to clarify Standard 019, especially concerning the role of the Person in Charge.

The video briefing is scenario based to help frontline teams better understand the key principles of Standard 019, with guidance on how to adopt the standard in various situations.

Everyone who holds a Personal Track Safety (PTS) competence is required to watch the video briefing and confirm understanding the 019 Principles and associated ways of working. This includes Responsible Managers, Persons in Charge and Planners with access to SSoWPs.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent social distancing restrictions, the deadline to brief all Network Rail PTS holders is now 31 March 2021.

This briefing is for internal Network Rail PTS competence holders and supply chain colleagues that apply the Person in Charge principles.
