Rail is a safety critical industry where a failure or malfunction may result in loss of life or serious injury to customers, workers or anyone using the railway. To keep people safe the industry is governed by laws, regulations and standards and as a professional train driver you will be subject to screening for drugs and alcohol throughout the course of your career. A failed test may result in the loss of your driving licence and your job.
