Government ignoring train safety solution. Letters, July 5, 2022

With ongoing strike action over the safe operation of the new trains, the question is who is responsible for the train operating safely? The OHS laws require a risk assessment be done with the management and operators. The risk assessment by the drivers has identified a risk of someone being seriously injured or possibly death. For them to drive the train whilst the risk remains puts them in breach. It's like asking a truck driver to drive a truck knowing it is faulty.
