Restructuring Transnet Freight Rail’s School of Rail
Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) has embarked on a strategic journey to be a Railway organisation, which is fully compliant with the rules and regulations relevant to that of a complied, embedded Safety Management System. The main objective was to assist TFR in embedding a safety culture. The Project evaluated, verified, and benchmarked all aspects of safety, all parties involved and all current projects/activities so as to design/recommend a set of “best practice” improvement measures that will ensure that safety becomes an integrated part of our daily operating system.
The services performed by the DB Rail Academy and DB Engineering & Consulting included the following main activities:
- Rendering assistance to the modernization and restructuring of Transnet Freight Rail’s training organization (TFR School of Rail)
- Analysis of the initial situation, needs assessment, gap analysis
- Rendering consulting support to the restructuring / change management process
- Conducting safety management, safety culture and safety awareness trainings
