Recommendation

IÉ-IM should brief Signalmen on RRVs operations during possessions (i.e. accessing and egressing worksites and well as travelling to worksites training in terms of RRVs operating in possessions) to ensure points are set correctly for the RRV movements. Training material for Signalmen on the roles of RRVs should be updated to reflect this.
