Ref # 2019004-15
Status Open / In progress
Occurrence Road Rail Vehicle occurrences on Iarnród Éireann Network
Occurrence Date 24 September 2015

Basis for Recommendation

Section Q 2018, does make a number of other changes, related to protection arrangements, CCTV level crossings and speed limits, although it should be noted that I-PLM-5001 requires that the maximum speed over checkrails is 2 km/h, which currently is not in Section Q 2108. In addition, one of the requirements of Section Q 2018 is currently not being implemented, in that IÉ-IM’s RRVCs are not collecting the pre-operations checklist from the RRVOs. As a result, the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:

Recommendation

IÉ-IM should make changes to the IÉ Rule Book to ensure that all relevant requirements set out in their Plant & Machinery Standards related to RRVs are incorporated into the IÉ Rule Book.
