LID UP, is an example of how we respond to our personnel’s suggestions, particularly those that represent obvious safety risks. Lid-Up is a simple and yet effective Safety Focus, that was proposed by S&T Cover personnel, which supports “Everyone Home Safe Everyday”.
Every S&T Cover Operative, in line with Network Rails “Don’t Walk By” Initiative, will not walk by. At least once a week, each operative, including management, will put a minimum of one dislodged trough lid back into place if they spot a lid that has become dislodged, thus reducing hazards, accidents and improving operational productivity and safety throughout the railway network. For each Lid replaced, a Close Call is raised then immediately closed.
Any further dislodged lids that are not able to be replaced are reported as a Close Call to our HSQE Manager, who in turn reports it via Network Rails Close Call System.
