Part 2 Division 5 Clause 11
11   Matters to be considered in preparing fatigue management program
When preparing the fatigue management program for its railway operations, or changes to the fatigue management program, a rail transport operator must take into account, and assess, any fatigue-related risks to safety arising from the following:
(a)  the impact on rail safety workers of the scheduling of shift and rest periods,
(b)  without limiting paragraph (a), the impact of work scheduling and relief practices generally on social and psychological factors that may impact on performance and safety,
(c)  the kinds of rail safety work being carried out,
(d)  physiological factors arising out of work practices affecting rail safety workers, such as the effect on worker alertness and recovery of the time when work is undertaken and the length and frequency of breaks,
(e)  the need for education and training of rail safety workers to identify and manage fatigue,
(f)  the kind of rest environments that are to be provided by the operator for rail safety workers,
(g)  the physical environment in which rail safety work is to be carried out,
(h)  any special circumstances in which rail safety work may be required to be carried out, including in emergencies or under degraded and abnormal conditions,
(i)  the variations in shifts and rest periods that may be required by different rail safety work requirements, including different routes,
(j)  relevant developments in research related to fatigue and any technology that may be applied to manage work-related fatigue.
