The London Underground Worksite Safety Induction (LU-WSI) course is the first training course needed before to take to work on London Underground.
Most training providers require individuals to book these course elements separately, however, Morson Training is the only TfL-accredited provider to enable delegates to take both parts of the course through one booking.
LU-WSI: eLearning and practical test combined
The LU-WSI course is split into two mandatory areas, an eLearning module followed by a practical test. Delegates must pass both parts of the course, the online and practical test, to complete the Worksite Safety Induction.
Most training providers require individuals to book these course elements separately. However, book through Morson Training and receive the eLearning link to access the test material immediately before completing the practical test which runs daily from our training centre in Canning Town, London.
By enabling our delegates to complete both parts of the course in one session we decrease non-productive downtime and create cost efficiencies for employers whilst reducing travel and time pressure on individuals.
Why take the LU-WSI course?
Passing the LU-WSI enables workers to access the London Underground infrastructure to carry out their duties on the railway.
In addition, this training focuses on the safety requirements to keep workers and their colleagues safe whilst working on London Underground premises.
What are the key aspects of the LU-WSI course?
The eLearning and practical components of the course are both designed to allow delegates to demonstrate their commitment to due diligence on the railway.
The key aspects of the LU-WSI include:
- Health and safety on the line
- Fatigue management
- Knowledge of work locations
- Understanding the various roles and responsibilities of those around you
- Signing in and out of London Underground
- Understanding worksite hazards and fire prevention
- Information on asbestos on London Underground infrastructure and what to do if you accidentally disturb asbestos
- Using a lift, escalator, or moving walkway
- Working at height and lifting equipment
- Exclusion zones
What courses will I need to take after the LU-WSI?
After completing the LU-WSI course rail workers may either choose or be required to undertake basic track awareness.
The Basic Track Awareness course enables individuals to progress up the competency ladder, improving skills, knowledge, and capability. Basic Track Awareness enables a worker to operate in the track environment during traffic hours, engineering hours, in depots or possessions with train movements and/or live traction current, whilst under protection. Anyone intending to access the track during traffic hours, in an area where there are train movements, or in an area with live traction current must have this certification as a minimum.
Individuals may also choose, or be required to, complete several other rail training courses such as:
