Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||06 March 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
GrainCorp's procedures were not sufficiently clear with respect to the use of the CountryNet system as the primary communication system. Further, it was evident that the organisation's policy with respect to train communications actively encouraged the routine use of secondary communication systems by their train crews.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that GrainCorp take action to address this safety issue.
