Industry Common Induction (ICI) Network Rail
The Industry Common Induction (ICI) provides staff with a health and safety induction for working in construction sites, rail depots and station maintenance. It has been developed by Network Rail, in partnership with ISLG (Infrastructure Safety Liaison Group) and RIAG (Rail Infrastructure Assurance Group). It covers the safety procedures and risks that are common across the rail industry, whatever the role and type of site. The aim is for the ICI to become the entry level competence for working in the rail industry.
ICI improves safety and productivity on sites:
- Because all workers have the ICI, their site-specific inductions can focus on the risks and hazards that are particular to the job they are doing and the place where they are working.
- Knowledge is tested to make sure the induction has been understood.
- There is re-certification every 60 months to keep knowledge is kept up-to-date.
- There are clear records of the whole workforce, trackside and non-trackside.
ICI consists of an e-learning module that you do at your own pace, followed by an online assessment. You must do the online assessment at an approved assessment centre with an invigilator present, and you have to pass it to gain your ICI.
Once you have done the e-learning and passed the exam, the ICI competence is added to your Sentinel card record. ICI is mandatory for anyone working on any Network Rail site.
