OTHR has developed an Induction course for all Rail Safety Workers.

To comply with the Rail Safety Act, OTHR will ensure that all workers engaged in rail safety work are trained by means of this OTHR developed induction course and if satisfactorily completed, will issue a Certificate of Competency.

This fundamental Certificate of Competency is in the form of an identity card bearing your photograph, ID number, expiry date, highest qualification and other prescribed information. It will be issued following successful completion of this awareness course. The Certificate of Competency will be re-issued at least every 5 years or when more qualifications are gained.

Code of Conduct

OTHR has a Code of Conduct which all members should be familiar with.

  2. Policy:
    OTHR will recognise prior learning by the way of awarded certifications / qualifications of members that have been obtained via accredited third parties.
    Minimum standard for Loco Driver (shunting) Certificate 3 in Terminal Train Driving (TL133215) and current Cat 1 Medical.
