Personal Track

Safety (PTS)

Personal Track Safety (PTS) is a system for safer working practices employed within the United Kingdom, designed to ensure the safety of railway workers who work on or near the network line.

The Personal Track Safety qualification is a mandatory requirement for every worker and has to be obtained before being allowed to work on or near any line owned or managed by Network Rail. The main risks of working on the railway are:

  • Rail incidents.

  • Dangers from an overhead power line or electrocution.

  • Personal injuries due to working near or on the track.

The Personal Track Safety course is intended for candidates who wish to work on or near the line on Network Rail’s infrastructure and covers a wide range of track specific information and procedures, including:

  • Infrastructure and terminology.

  • Rail safe working practices.

  • Basic emergency procedures.

  • Communication protocol.
