Access to the PTA network for employees and contractors is managed through the Rail Industry Worker program

By law, every person working on the PTA network must be able to provide proof of currency of the required track access accreditation level. To meet this requirement all workers on the network must hold and carry a valid Rail Industry Worker (RIW) card.

RIW is a national competency management system for rail workers. It is owned by the Australasian Railway Association (ARA) and endorsed by all of its member organisations.The system is provided by Metro Trains Australia. More information about the program can be found on the RIW website.  

Specific information about PTA Safeworking Rules and Procedures, including track access accreditation levels, is available on our safety resources page.

It is the responsibility of all RIW card holders to ensure they are aware of updates to the PTA’s Safeworking Rules and Procedures. Therefore, it is essential that you keep your contact details up-to-date in order to receive any updates.
