Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||14 November 2007|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The 'Test & Commissioning Plan' was deficient in that it did not adequately address the split of responsibilities between the engineer (responsible for managing the wiring alteration process) and the technician (for facilitating train safeworking and implementing WNR's signalling policies and procedures). This uncertainly may have led to some confusion regarding the ownership of important train safeworking decisions.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that WestNet Rail take action to address this safety issue.
