Hitachi Rail STS’s training path, as part of the integrated Quality, Safety and Environment management system, has been implemented with the cooperation of training needs managers (TNM). This initiative aims to identify personnel who can serve as contacts for Human Resources in the definition of specific training and development plans for operational structures, in order to facilitate understanding of the specific needs of each operational unit and make it possible to define projects that more accurately target their actual needs. TNM is distinguished by its concept of “Community”, which translates into encouraging the creation of a network to reduce geographical distances. In 2016, Hitachi Rail STS carried out training and information sessions to draw attention to:
- the procedures and requirements of the Integrated Management System;
- the roles and responsibilities needed to achieve compliance with the environmental policy and the procedures and requirements of the Integrated Management System, including preparing for emergency situations and response capacity;
- the potential consequences of not complying with the specified operating procedures.
The training sessions were held by personnel competent in the relevant field. The specialized technical focus of the training demonstrates Hitachi Rail STS’s aim of targeting operating positions involved in duties and activities that are potentially critical in terms of the environment.
