Ref # 2023001-01
Status Open / In progress
Occurrence Dangerous occurrence involving a Double SPAD at Clontarf Road Station, 7th December 2021
Occurrence Date 07 December 2021

Basis for Recommendation

As a result of Driver E240’s over-reliance on the ATP System, and apparent lack of understanding on the part of the DTEs’ understanding of the OTDR downloads, the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:


The Head of Health & Safety IÉ-RU should arrange for the development and issue of a guidance document for drivers outlining the understanding of the ATP equipment and the driving technique required. New training, monitoring and assessment material should be developed from this guidance.
