Safety Recommendation

The ATSB recommends that SCT develop arrangements that do not require employees to ride a locomotive/wagon whilst it is being shunted, this should be done without compromising the safety of shunt movements; or if not feasible develop a restraint mechanism/workstation to protect a shunter from falling from a locomotive/wagon whilst carrying out a shunt movement.
