RED 46 - Making Assumptions

The reconstruction in this issue of RED looks at an incident caused by fatigue and a lapse in safety critical communications. There are learning points for all safety critical staff.

Our first news item looks at level crossings, and potential ways of reducing the risk. We also hear about the December 2016 Rule Book changes on the operational response to GSM-R failures.


The programme includes:

  • Level Crossings
  • Reconstruction case study
  • Resources for discussion points
  • GMS-R failures and new rules
