In May 2015, Transport and Infrastructure Council approved the scope of the review of the legislative framework for fatigue risk management, with a view to achieving a nationally consistent legislative framework which best supports the management of fatigue in the rail industry.
In progressing the review to date, ONRSR has engaged with key stakeholders including a reference group comprising members from industry, ARA, RTBU and governments.
ONRSR has now released a discussion paper as part of the review that is open to all stakeholders for comment from Wednesday 30 May to Tuesday 31 July 2018.
The discussion paper will be the focus of workshops across Australia and ONRSR encourages you to attend and provide input to the progression of the review.
The reference group has agreed terms of reference for the review.
ONRSR conducted public consultation as part of the review it is undertaking on behalf of the Transport and Infrastructure Council of the drug and alcohol provisions within Rail Safety National Law.

A consultation paper outlining the proposed changes has been released. Consultation is open from Monday 5 August 2019 until close of business Friday 30 August 2019.
This paper follows a number of NSW D&A identity card discussion sessions held with NSW operators and third party service providers in March 2019. ONRSR welcomes your views on the proposed changes via email.
