Diagramming and rostering

1) General requirements
The overarching principle for diagramming and rostering should be "Do these members need to be at work?" If they don't then they should be at home in line with government advice. Remember:
"Stay home, stay safe and protect the NHS"
We advise that best practice is:
a) Reducing the number of members at work to the absolute minimum necessary to deliver the train plan.
b) Placing PNBs on the end of short diagrams (where diagramming parameters permit this) so that members can go straight home and not to a full mess room or PNB point.
c) Where diagrams are too long to have PNBs at the end of them then consideration should be given to having as few driver change overs as possible.
d) We advise that best practice when considering members who are "Spare" is:
i) That the train plan should keep the number of spares to an absolute minimum.
ii) To adopt the principle of "sit at home" spares where contact via mobile phone is made if the member is required.
iii) Members that are sent home can be used for short notice cover (standby) subject to agreement with our negotiators.
