Electronic Competence Management improving critical safety standards for Light Railway
AssessTech lead the industry in Developmental Competence
Tram Operations Limited has recently taken their first step into electronic competence management. As the first light rail company to follow this path, we speak to Andy Wallace who explains the reasons behind why First Trams are pioneering this exciting new approach.
Tram Operations Limited operates the only tram network in London, transporting more than 29 million passengers each year.
“For Tram Operations Limited, electronic competence management was definitely the ideal solution. We wanted to improve efficiency and visibility over our competence management arrangements to ensure the processes were slicker for both the candidate and the assessor. This would ultimately result in a much more cost-effective and (by eliminating the need for large paper-based files) environmentally responsible solution.
“Having worked in safety and been responsible for delivering complex competence management solutions for a number of years, I am aware of the various systems available in the market.
Roll-out of ACMS will start in September 2018 and we expect to be fully operational by the end of the year. “
