At approximately 1317 Central Standard Time on Wednesday 2 February 2005, a Specialised Container Transport (SCT) employee was seriously injured whilst undertaking shunting operations at the SCT Rail Yards, Regency Park, South Australia.

The investigation found that work procedures allowed a shunter to ride on the end step of a wagon while being shunted and did not require that the driver confirm that the shunter was safe and/or in a safe position before starting a shunt movement.

The report proposes eight recommendations to improve railway operational safety.
