How to request additional Medical Provider logins

Medical Provider Users (Authorised Health Professionals, or AHP's) can request additional Medical Provider logins to assist in the lodging of medical results in their practice by administrative staff. These additional Medical Provider Users have the same access as a Medical Provider login.


To create an additional Medical Provider User, an AHP Management Service Request needs to be raised with the RIW Service Desk at https://www.riw.net.au/contact-us/request-a-service/?ahpmanagement.


PLEASE NOTE: The Service Request has to be raised by the AHP so that it can be clarified that the new login is authorised.


Before starting the Service Request, have the following information to hand:

 

  1. Full name of the new Medical Provider User
  2. Unique email address of new Medical Provider User


Upon launching the Service Request form, from the dropdown in the Request Category box select Other.  All fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.  Please make it clear that you are an AHP and are requesting a login for one of your staff.


Please add the full name and email address for the new login in the Comments field.




Check that all the information is correct and click Send.


The request will be processed by the RIW Service Desk and a login will be sent to the new Medical Provider User.

What are the medical and drug & alcohol result outcomes?

The following table shows the RIW System outcome from a medical or drug & alcohol screening result selected by an Authorised Health Professional.


This instruction applies to the following RIW System User Roles: 

  • Medical Provider User
  • Helpdesk

Medical Result


Medical result selected 

Pass/Fail Outcome 

Fit for Duty Unconditional 

Fit for Duty 

Fit for Duty Conditional 

Fit for Duty 

Fit for Duty Subject to Job Modification 

Fit for Duty 

Fit for Duty Subject to Review 

Fit for Duty

Temporarily Unfit 

Not Fit for Duty

Permanently Unfit 

Not Fit for Duty 


A medical result recorded as either Temporarily Unfit or Permanently Unfit may change the validity of certain competencies and/or job roles the cardholder holds, which may impact their authority to work.



Drug & Alcohol Result

Where a drug and/or alcohol screen is required as part of the cardholder’s medical - i.e. a new medical, change of medical category etc. - the AHP can record the outcome. 

The following table shows the RIW System outcome for the selected result by the AHP. 


Drug & Alcohol Test result selectedPass / Fail Outcome
Confirmed PositiveFail
NegativePass
Test RefusalFail
No Test RequiredPass


If either of the separate drugs and/or alcohol test results are recorded as Fail, it will affect the cardholder’s authority to work as an immediate and an automatic National Block will be imposed. 

This means the cardholder will not be able work on participating RIW program rail networks. 

However, each network can decide independently whether the block can be lifted for their network alone. 


Random, post-incident and show cause D&A tests

These types of D&A tests are not managed via an AHP login.  Where a Network Operator conducts D&A testing under their Drug and Alcohol Management Program, any confirmed positives or failures will be managed via the RIW Program Blocks and Suspension Rules.

What are the medical categories and expiry calculations used in the RIW System?


Medical categories as recorded in the RIW System are defined below.  


Expiry dates - with the exception of category 4 health assessments - are automatically calculated by the RIW System from the cardholder’s date of birth and date of assessment, as outlined below:


Category 1 and 2 health assessments

  • At time of commencement
  • Up to 50 years old: 5 yearly
  • If aged 45 and 46: 5 yearly
  • Ages 47, 48 and 49: the expiry would be set as their 52nd birthday
  • Age 50-60: every 2 years
  • From age 60: renewed annually

Note: the cardholder must have a health assessment conducted within 2 years after turning 50 years of age, and within 1 year after turning 60 years of age.


Category 3 health assessments

  • At time of commencement - 
  • Up to 40 years old: expires on the worker's 40th birthday
  • From age 40: every five years

Note: Category 3 cardholders who have had a full health assessment less than 5 years before turning 40 will have their next periodic assessment scheduled 5 years from that date.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Transport for NSW (TfNSW) requires category 3 medicals to expire every 5 years, irrespective of the cardholder’s age. Therefore, where a cardholder holds a TfNSW role, the expiration of that role will be set to 5 years from the date of the medical. This will apply to the job role, regardless of whether the medical expiry date on the worker's profile is longer or not.

Where a cardholder holds a non-TfNSW role requiring a category 3 medical and a TfNSW role, the expiration of those roles will be set based on the separate requirements; one to the National Health Standard, and one to TfNSW requirements.  


Category 4 health assessments

  • These are a ‘once only’ pre-screen medical done at time of commencement;
  • The expiry date of the medical is set by the doctor.

 

Unfit for category 1, but fit for 2 & 3 (in effect category 2)

The AHP has determined that the cardholder does not meet the requirements to fulfill a Category 1 medical, but is fit for Category 2 and 3. This could mean the cardholder may require further testing, or the cardholder could have permanent requirements that could not be met. These should be indicated on the results page. Expiry of the medical would be similar to a category 2 assessment, or pending re-evaluation as determined by the AHP.

 

Unfit for categories 1 and 2, but fit for 3 (in effect category 3)

The AHP has determined that the cardholder does not meet the requirements to fulfill a Category 1 or 2 medical, but is fit for category 3. This could mean the cardholder may require further testing, or the cardholder could have permanent requirements that could not be met. These should be indicated on the results page. Expiry of the medical would be similar to a category 3 assessment, or pending re-evaluation as determined by the AHP.

  

Unfit for categories 1, 2 & 3, but fit for work outside the Danger Zone (in effect category 4)

The AHP has determined that the cardholder does not meet the requirements to fulfill a Category 1, 2 or 3 medical, but is fit for category 4. This could mean the cardholder may require further testing, or the cardholder could have permanent requirements that could not be met. These should be indicated on the results page. Expiry of the medical would be similar to a category 4 assessment, or pending re-evaluation as determined by the AHP.

 


With the exception of category 4 health assessments, a calculated expiry date cannot be extended beyond the calculated date shown, however expiry dates can be reduced.

   

For further details, please refer to the National Business Rules regarding expiry dates of specific medical assessments here.

How are cardholders who hold multiple medicals managed?

Cardholders may hold multiple medicals at any given time, and roles/competencies managed as per the requirements detailed in What are the medical categories and expiry calculations used in the RIW System?


For example: a cardholder can hold valid Category 1 and Category 3 Medicals simultaneously, with the respective expiry dates based on the National Standard or TfNSW’s Category 3 requirement - i.e. the expiration is independent of each other. 


However, the interaction between the medicals may be impacted upon at the next medical, for example:

  • If the cardholder is due for their Category 3 Medical, and the Medical Provider (AHP) deems the cardholder as Unfit for Duty, the RIW System will treat the cardholder as unfit for both Category 1 and the Category 3 medicals.


  • If the cardholder is due for their Category 1 Medical and the AHP deems the cardholder as unfit for duty for the category 1, the Category 3 medical will not be affected.


If the cardholder is due to renew their Category 1 Medical, the AHP may deem the cardholder as Unfit for Duty for the Category 1, and may record the outcome as ‘Unfit for Categories 1 and 2, but fit for 3’ (in effect Category 3). Consequently, the RIW System will treat this as a Category 3 Medical and set the new expiry date accordingly.


Work Restrictions and Multiple Medicals

Where multiple medicals are held by a cardholder, the work restrictions set by the most recent Medical Assessment will be used on the cardholder’s profile.

Where can I find the National Fit Slips (Part B) Health Assessment Report and Triggered Health Assessment Report?


Authorised Health Professionals can now use the Health Assessment Report and Triggered Health Assessment Report when completing a Rail Safety Worker Health Assessment.  This form replaces the Part B of the Request and Report Form (Fit Slip), which is returned to the Rail Transport Operator / Employer.


The Health Assessment Report page can be used for pre-employment, periodic and change of category medical assessments.


The Triggered Health Assessment Report page can be used when a medical assessment has been triggered. It is important to note that the additional Triggered Health Assessment Report includes an important field to capture the last periodic medical, which is used to ensure the correct medical assessment expiry is set in the RIW System.


NOTE: The RIW Service Desk has been instructed to continue accepting old fit slips (Request and Report Form). After the roll-out of the National Fit Slip, all Rail Safety Worker Health Assessments must be completed on either of the above forms. TfNSW will continue to use separate forms for their employees.
