SGS, First Company in Spain to be Certificated as Authorized Training Centre for the Railway Sector
Last 2012, SGS ACADEMY achieved the certification as Authorized Training Centre for the Railway Sector.
According to the March 31st 4/2006 Railway Regulation, Ferrocarril Metropolità de Barcelona (FCMB) is recognized as part of Catalunya’s Railway System and therefore is obligued to comply with this regulation, as well as it is subjected to the conditions and requirements established for staff habilitation, ensuring the demanded qualification to perform the railway service with safety and efficiency.
Security in the Railway Transportation RD, determines, as well, that the organizations will be “responsible of training and qualification for their staff and those who perform duties subjected to potential effects on the circulation safety”.
In compliance of both regulations, FCMB, as recognized railway operator, has determined an authorization and performance system for their training centers, with SGS ACADEMY as the first certificated organization appointed for railway habilitation.
FCMB and SGS have stepped forward the implementation of a Railway Safety culture, being a pioneering company once more due to their experience and commitment to involve all human resources within their organization in these precepts.
