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

This site is intended to provide SCO customers (both IP and Route Businesses) 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 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 supplier, included in a Task Control Sheet (TCS). 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 TCS 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 operation.

To obtain the relevant safety information for a SCO operational activity please click on the appropriate link on the right hand side of this page.

Please be aware that it is the responsibility of the IP or Route Business customer ordering the SCO supplied service to ensure that the content of the Safe Work Pack applicable to that service are compliant with standard 019.
