Visit to the Track Hazard School

01:30 PM - 03:30 PM GMT Standard Time

Track_Hazard_medium_size



This is a unique opportunity to gain some hands-on experience at TfL’s Track Hazard School and will provide an insight into the enormous task of maintaining and keeping the London Underground running.

This training facility provides a controlled environment for staff to try their hazard spotting skills in a realistic track environment without the risks of live conductor rails and moving trains. It comprises a section of genuine LU ballasted track and fixed equipment that is dressed with a range of hazards.

Neil Pepper MBE, Safety Manager of TfL will invite attendees to inspect the area in pairs, detailing the hazards they recognise. After the observation period, the entire group will be brought together and all the hazards identified and their potential impact on individuals and passenger service explained by Neil.  Attendees will be not be individually scored.

Certificates of attendance will be issued if required.

Hi visibility vests and safety footwear can be provided but it would be helpful if you are able to bring your own.  Unfortunately this tour is only suitable for members who have no walking impairment due to the risks involved in walking on the track and uneven ground.
