Reference Point, the UK’s leading competency management technology company, is delighted to announce that the new Rail Industry Worker Program’s (RIW) solution for the Australian Rail Industry has officially launched.
The RIW Program provides a single system for Australian rail workers, designed to establish a cohesive, national approach to competency management. The solution includes full competency and evidence records, job roles, employment, work associations and other information that can uniquely identify and verify the credentials held on a worker’s physical and/ or virtual smartcard assuring full ‘authority to work’.
Reference Point has been working closely with its partner, Metro Trains Australia (MTA), to deliver the solution for the Australasian Railway Association (ARA). The powerful RIW system is based on Reference Point’s market-leading SkillGuard technology.
Commenting on the launch, Tanya Morris, Business Development Director at Reference Point said: “I am delighted that the solution has fully launched. As well as delivering the software, this has been a major transition from the previous system to ours and all the partners involved have worked together to ensure that the process has been handled well.
The solution will deliver against the ultimate objective of protecting and enhancing safety on the nation’s rail networks and we are proud to be part of this achievement.”
