Useful Health and Safety Resources on the Web
OPSWEB is the website of the rail industry's Operations Focus Group (OFG), the industry's body charged with leading the drive to reduce operational risk on the UK rail network.
OPSWEB is the successor to SPADWEB which was targeted at SPAD risk. The site has been broadened to cover the wider range of operational risk, providing more information on other issues, and not those solely connected with SPADS.
You will find descriptions of what particular operation risks are, some of the reasons why they occur and what the rail industry is doing to prevent them here.
The TUC has put together a number of leaflets, guides and forms to help health and safety reps do what they do best - keep the workplace safe and healthy.
