SCO delivery processes for services provided within a worksite in a possession

This site is intended to provide SCO customers who are creating a Safe Work Pack (SWP) under the requirements of Network Rail company standard NR/L2/OHS/019 (referred to as 019), with the key safety requirements needed for inclusion in the SWP. Each method of working/statement (in the relevant Task Risk Control Sheets – TRCS’s) is appropriate for each unique SCO materials delivery/track treatment process being provided.

For every SCO delivery mechanism/track treatment service there is a safe method of working which has been provided by the appropriate supplier, included in the Task Risk Control Sheet. These are to be included as part of the Safe Work Pack (SWP) for Supply Chain Operations provided activity.

Key safety requirements held in the TRCS must be applied on site to prevent a serious injury from occurring around the SCO supply chain delivery/activity.  These must be included in the SWP and complied with for the appropriate SCO operation.
