A training session, usually a 5-day module is designed for hands-on working by Loco Drivers in the loco simulator cab under the supervision of an instructor covering the following areas of driving skills and safety knowledge:
Controlling of train on ascending and descending gradients.
Decelerating and stopping of the train.
Application of emergency brakes.
Over speeding and Signal Passing At Danger (SPAD).
Reflex actions while managing the abnormal situations such as animal crossing the track or any other obstruction including the derailment on adjacent track.
Energy conservation by coasting and proper brake application.
It may be observed that the average scores related to driving skills and safety knowledge of Drivers have improved by nearly 43% after the completion of training on Loco Simulator.
A series of multiple choice questions on various subjects related to train operations, driving skills, trouble shooting and safety is thrown up randomly to Drivers through a software on a touch screen monitor and response to questions in evaluated with a final tally of results in terms of overall scores with correct answers.
Safety performance on IR in terms of accidents per million train Kms has consistently improved over the last 06 years and it is targeted to achieve an index of 0.17 accidents per million train Kms by the year 2013 adopting the following new technologies:
