ICI – Industry Common Induction E-Learning
The Industry Common Induction (ICI) provides a health and safety induction for staff working in construction sites, rail depots and station maintenance. It covers the safety procedures and risks that are common across the rail industry, whatever the role and type of site.
Effective from 1st June 2016, completing an ICI Competence Assessment is mandatory for working on any Network Rail IP sponsored project.
Individuals who require an ICI but attend site without one should be asked to gain ICI within 12 site visits or within 6 weeks. Individuals who have not complied with the mandate shall be rejected from site.
