Over deze norm
This standard provides requirements and measures to deal with the significant and specific railway risks during track works and with common principles for the protection of fixed and mobile work sites with trains circulating on the working track and on the adjacent track. Railway risks and protection measures for access and egress to/from the worksite are considered in the same way as railway risks and protection measures for track work itself. This standard is applicable to all operations related to track works activities on rail guided systems. Metro, tram and other light rail systems are excluded from the scope. The following specific railway risks are taken into consideration: - Risk 1: Personnel being struck by a train or injured due to wind drag from a train on open working track (safety of the worker); - Risk 2: Personnel being struck by a train or injured due to wind drag from train on adjacent track (safety of the worker); - Risk 3: Personnel being struck by machine or train on blocked track (safety of the worker); - Risk 4: Machines, material or equipment being struck by a train on the adjacent track (safety of the operation/safety of the worker); - Risk 5: Personnel being electrified by fixed electrical equipment (safety of the worker). This standard also provides requirements to the process of installing basic preventive measures when planning new infrastructure or installing corrective measures when adapting existing infrastructure. This standard may be extended to outside parties when it is considered appropriate and reasonable by the infrastructure manager, if one or more of the 5 significant risks described inside this standard, arise as a result of their activities in proximity of the track.
