View location requirements in the Web Card Reader

This article details how to view the location requirements in the Web Card Reader that has been set by the Network or Contractor In Charge of a Project, Site or Zone.  This allows an Access Controller or Spot Checker to identify any pre-requisite competencies required for a Rail Industry Worker to access the current location.

NOTE: Site requirements are refreshed every 30 minutes, or when a user logs in or logs out of a web card reader session. If site requirements are update when a user is logged in with the web card reader, please log out and log in to refresh.

This instruction applies to the following user roles:

  • Access Controller
  • Spot Checker


Login to the Web Card Reader at, following instructions in How to log in and use the Web Card Reader.


On the Web Card Reader home page, click on your profile photo in the top right of the screen to display the sub-menu, and then Location Requirements.

The location requirements will display on screen. The example below shows that two pre-work briefs are required for a Rail Industry Worker to be allowed access to the site. The Access Controller can award these competencies (if awardable by an Access Controller) by following the instructions in View and award pending site-based competencies using the Web Card Reader.

In the below example, a number of Network competencies are required. In this case, they can not be awarded by an Access Controller. The Rail Industry Worker should be referred back to their employer to undertake the necessary training and upload of the required competencies to their RIW profile.
