RIS-3279-TOM - Railway Standard - Orange Only

The RIS-3279-TOM standard is a specification relevant to the UK rail industry, particularly concerning the visibility of railway workers on or near the tracks. This standard is an update and extension of previous guidelines aimed at ensuring that all personnel are highly visible, thereby reducing the risk of accidents and enhancing safety.

Key Points of RIS-3279-TOM:

  • High Visibility Clothing The standard mandates specific types of high-visibility clothing that railway workers must wear. This clothing is designed to make workers easily seen by train drivers and other railway staff, especially in low light conditions or where there is a background that might otherwise camouflage them.

  • Colour Specification One of the notable aspects of RIS-3279-TOM is the specification of an orange color for high-visibility clothing. This color is chosen for its effectiveness in standing out against most backgrounds, particularly in the varied environments found along railways.

  • Compliance Requirements The standard sets out detailed requirements for the design and material of high-visibility clothing, including retroreflective properties and minimum areas of visible material. It ensures that the clothing meets specific safety standards and performance requirements under various conditions, such as in wet weather.

  • Application and Enforcement RIS-3279-TOM is applicable to all workers within the UK rail industry who might be at risk from moving vehicles, including trains. The standard is enforced by railway operators and contractors, who must ensure that all personnel are equipped with compliant high-visibility clothing.

  • Updates and Revisions As an evolution of previous standards (notably the GO/RT 3279, which it replaced), RIS-3279-TOM reflects the latest understanding and technology in high-visibility clothing. It may be updated or revised as new information becomes available or as working conditions change.

Importance of RIS-3279-TOM

The RIS-3279-TOM standard is crucial for the safety of railway workers. By specifying requirements for high-visibility clothing, it plays a vital role in preventing accidents and injuries on the railways. Compliance with the standard is a key aspect of risk management and safety protocols within the UK rail industry, ensuring that workers are visible at all times and reducing the likelihood of accidents.
