This includes the management of on and off-tracking On Track Plant (OTP) and train movements within the designated worksite.

The ES course will take delegates through the procedures as set out in the Rule Book; Handbook 12 (Duties of the engineering supervisor) and Handbook 13 (Duties of the person in charge of the siding).
