Engineering Safety and Systems Engineering

Engineering Safety and Systems Engineering

The Transport Access Program (TAP) is an initiative of Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to deliver accessible, modern, secure and integrated infrastructure at stations and interchanges throughout New South Wales. TAP consists of many projects spanning a period of several years. Approximately 50 TAP projects are commenced each year.

The TAP is currently the second-largest program within TfNSW in terms of total expenditure, second only to the Sydney Metro program.  The total spend on TAP by 2018 is expected to be almost $3 billion.

For the last 3 years, Nova Systems has supplied engineering safety and systems assurance services to the TAP.  This includes assisting TfNSW Technical Managers and Project Managers to ensure that TAP contractors meet safety and assurance obligations and reviewing all contractor submissions before presentation to the TfNSW Configuration Control Board (CCB).

Nova also assisted TfNSW to optimise safety and assurance procedures and to adapt those procedures for use with Authorised Engineering Organisations (AEOs).  In November 2014, Nova Systems was the 11th organisation to attain AEOs accreditation by TfNSW’s Asset Standards Authority (ASA).
