Additional Information:

The LU Worksite Safety Induction (LU-WSI) competence is valid for 6 years, after which you will need to complete a new E-learning and re-certification assessment.

Holding the WSI competence allows you to access London Underground sites, however, it does not allow you to touch the railway infrastructure. You may work all other jobs that do not require you to interfere with the rail infrastructure such as vegetation, general labour, cleaning etc. Those who wish to carry out track engineering or maintenance must have successfully completed the Track Induction training (for Network Rail) and/or Basic Track Awareness (for London Underground).


Results for the LU-WSI competence will be uploaded onto your Sentinel card/profile within 24 hours on successful completion of the event. Should there be any complication in uploading the competencies, we will endeavour to resolve the matter within 5 working days.
