Basis for Recommendation

There was a difference between the timings in the Weekly Circular and on the Prompt List given to the Safety Critical Staff regarding the termination time for the T3 Possession, the Person In Charge of Possession and Engineering Supervisor did not check the relevant Weekly Circular and an over reliance on the Prompt List meant they were unaware of the correct timings. The RAIU make the following safety recommendation:


Iarnród Éireann (Infrastructure Manager) should review the Site Safety Briefing procedure to ensure all personnel have made themselves aware of the information contained in the relevant Weekly Circular.
