V/Line is developing a comprehensive safety in design process which will be integrated with the type approval process within our Safety Management System. The safety in design process will be mandated for all design of systems and products in compliance with:
- Rail Safety National Legislation;
- Safe Work Australia guidelines; and
- Worksafe Victoria guidelines.
The ATSB is satisfied that the actions proposed by V/Line will, when implemented, adequately address this safety issue.
