Training Ahead has worked closely with companies who use Rail Industry Worker and Onsite Track Easy to create our new Pegasus/Rail Industry Workers Card Administrators Course.
We understand the challenges of managing hundreds of employees nationally and across different rail networks including Metro, ARTC, V/Line and Transport for NSW. We have taken the feedback on the areas that cause the most confusion and created a 3 hour Key Administrators Course to show you tips, tricks and guides to help understand and best utilise the system.

About the Program

Rail Industry Worker is a national competency management system for rail workers.

By law, everyone working on the Australian rail network must be able to provide proof of competency. This is the best way to reduce the risk of untrained people working on the rail network.

The Rail Industry Worker (RIW) program provides a single online competency management system for Australian rail workers. It’s owned and endorsed by the Australasian Railway Association (ARA) on behalf of members, meets regulatory requirements and complies with national rail safety law.

Contractor engagement and workforce management specialists Pegasus manage the RIW process, including collecting and verifying individual records, skills sets, training and competencies, and producing, distributing and administering associated competency and access cards.

The Pegasus software, Onsite Track Easy, is the real-time online contractor management solution that powers the Rail Industry Worker program. Onsite:

  • provides immediate access to data on rail contractors
  • manages training and inductions
  • administers rail contractor compliance and pre-qualification documents
  • manages the qualifications and competency, including licences and medicals, of all rail workers
  • awards accreditation upon successful completion of inductions and assessments
  • provides tools for audit, investigation and inspection of rail contractors
  • offers online and call centre support

After a 100 point identification check, Pegasus verifies the competence and identification of each applicant before their details are registered in the system and they receive their RIW card.
