The Safe Work Leader 1 course enables current Sentinel Tack Safety card holders, endorsed with COSS to perform Safe Work Leader duties on Network Rail Managed Infrastructure Projects. They will also pass the pre-qualifier assessment and have been nominated by their line manager/sponsor to enable them to attain the SWL conversion and subsequent competence.
The SWL competence is required to be held by anyone who is required to plan and set up a safe system of work on or near the line for a group (two or more). A SWL can also carry out the duties of an IWA provided there are no medical restrictions that would prevent this.
