Basis for Recommendation

Although noted as not being a contributory factor in the incident, the following safety recommendation is as a result of additional observations made by the RAIU during this investigation. The Isolation Signage is not placed until the final task of the switching programme at the outermost location has been undertaken. The Isolation Signage is not illuminated or secured in position; as a result, the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:


Transdev should consider increasing the visibility of the Isolation Signage (through illuminating); as well as providing a means to secure the Isolation Signage (to prevent the signage being removed by unauthorised persons).
