SHEM now live

SHEM (Safety, Health and Environment Management) is a new platform for Sydney Trains to better manage Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) incidents across the network.

SHEM went live on Sunday 1 July.

** Note: There was a system error which resulted in a “Training Expiration Notification” email being sent to all staff, including Train Crew.  Please disregard this email.  You do not need to complete this training.  Train Crew are being removed from the mandatory training list.  

While the introduction of SHEM does change some reporting processes, there is no change for Train Crew. If you see a Hazard or risk, please continue to follow the current process and report it to your Shift Manager who will then use the SHEM system.

Next phase Waratah Series 2 Testing

Our two Waratah B-Sets have reached the next phase of testing on the network.

This means that the Waratah Series 2 trains are now approved to operate under their own power and have started ‘Routine Testing’ and ‘Reliability Growth Running’ (RGR).

This is a significant milestone, with Waratah Series 2 trains expected to begin rolling onto the tracks later this year.

Our test crew will continue to be on each train as this testing is carried out on all 24 sets, ensuring all systems are operational and reliable before they enter into service.

You can find out more information about the testing processes in this Testing and Commissioning fact sheet.
