Basis for Recommendation

In relation to the drivers inspection, the sole reliance on drivers to check the coupling (including damage) should be removed (CF-01, UC-02) as a result the RAIU make the following safety recommendations:


The CME (IÉ RU) should introduce a visual indicator on the driving console (EMU Fleet) to indicate to the driver that coupling has been completed successfully (or a visual or audible indication that coupling has failed).
