Basis for Recommendation

As no formal risk assessment process was in place at the time of the re-positioning of the cameras, which effectively resulted in obstructed views at the level crossing; the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:


Iarnród Éireann's Signalling, Electrical & Telecommunications Department should develop a formalised risk assessment process for the positioning of CCTV cameras and associated design works.
