RAIB has today released its first Safety Digest, following a collision between two freight trains in a worksite near Ivybridge, Devon.
Safety Digests are a way of quickly sharing important safety messages when we have decided not to undertake a full investigation for any of the following reasons:
- the safety learning has already been covered by a previous recommendation or will be addressed by an ongoing investigation
- the safety learning mainly relates to compliance with existing rules, procedures or standards
- the safety learning has a narrow application.
You can subscribe to automated emails notifying you when we publish our reports and Safety Digests.
Notes to editors
- The sole purpose of RAIB investigations is to prevent future accidents and incidents and improve railway safety. RAIB does not establish blame, liability or carry out prosecutions.
