We have analysed incidents and accidents that have occurred across the tram network and identified seven key ways to reduce their likelihood.

  1. Monitor fatigue, health and fitness of your staff
  2. Conduct a risk assessment before making changes
  3. Conduct maintenance frequently and thoroughly
  4. Maintain heightened vigilance during abnormal situations
  5. Follow recommendations and controls through to completion
  6. Communicate safety information frequently and widely
  7. Provide thorough and frequent training to you staff
