Guidance from ASLEF Trains Health and Safety Council Reps.
Lone working – as Train Operators we are lone workers day or night. But the likelihood of incidents of anti-social behaviour is higher late in the evening and on Night Tube services.
If something happens to you or on your train it is important to report it. Always report directly to Service Control via Connect Radio at the time of the incident. You should then ask the TM to log it and ensure the incident is captured in an Electronic Incident Recording Form (EIRF). You should tell your ASLEF Representatives about what has happened so they can follow up with management.
Unstaffed stations – whatever the time only open section stations can be left unstaffed. If something happens that may put you at risk, you should remain in your cab or go to a place of safety and make an Emergency Call on your Connect Radio. LU take responsibility for passengers on unstaffed stations. You should never do anything which may put your personal safety at risk.
