A new framework for the Provision of Safe Working Services, within the ARTC rail corridor, is scheduled to be introduced from July 2022. Safe Working Service providers will be either

  • Authorised as an approved Self-Performer Organisation, and able to use their own employed safe working services, or
  • An approved member of the Safe Working Services panel.

To apply to be a Self-Performer Organisation, submit your application through the ARTC Avetta website. Further information on the Framework and Specifications, as well as a copy of the application questions is available below.
