Special Task Team 1 did not follow the instructions in the Transdev Radio Protocol which requires emergency calls to commence by saying “This is an Emergency call” twice; this, in part was as a result of the absence of any form of competency assessment for security staff, as a result the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:

Recommendation

Transdev should develop and implement an induction training and competency assessment program for security staff, which should include training and assessment in the use of safety critical communications.
