What is the RIW Program?

The RIW Program is owned by the Australasian Railway Association (ARA), administered by Metro Trains Australia (MTA), and is endorsed by all of its member organisations. 

The RIW Program also meets regulatory requirements and complies with Rail Safety National Law. 

The RIW Program supports the rail industry by allowing participant organisations full visibility of workers moving between projects and employers, maintaining a single electronic record about each worker’s health, education, and competencies.

This ensures that work is carried out by qualified people and enhances overall safety on rail networks across Australia. 

The RIW Program moved from a previous service provider to new service provider MTA on 28 June 2019.
