Basis for Recommendation
The PICs/ RRVCs involved in the RRV accidents and incidents, made some mistakes in terms of not identifying the correct position of the points, not requesting points movements, on-tracking RRVs on wrong roads and not reporting accidents, as a result the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:
IÉ-IM should review and update the training requirements of RRVCs with a view to incorporating:
- Basic infrastructure training (e.g. points);
- Training in communications with relevant staff;
- Practical RRV training to ensure they have confidence in accepting pre-operations checklists from RRVOs as set out in the IÉ Rule Book.
