The Secretary

Dear Colleague

Work At Heights - Network Rail

Further to H O Circular NP/253/13, 24th September 2013 the General Grades Committee have noted and adopted the following report of their Health and Safety Sub-committee:

We note progress with this matter and the company’s proposal that our nominated representatives are involved in assessing a representative sample of S&T structures allocated by our members on the Sub-group. The outcomes of this exercise are then to be used as a template for a national examination of all S&T structures with the full involvement of RMT representatives. We further note that although there is progress on this matter with regard to S&T we still have concerns with other Sub-groups OLE, Property and Maintenance and Telecoms and still some concerns on S&T. The General Secretary is instructed to place further developments in front of this General Grades Committee.

Branches and Regional Councils be advised.

I am acting in accordance with these instructions.

Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.

Yours sincerely

Bob Crow
General Secretary
