This Network Rail standard and the processes within the Reporting and Investigation Manual are applicable to all business units and functions. 

This standard and the processes within the Reporting and Investigation Manual do not apply to the initial reporting of an event (for example, information given by a signaller) as detailed in the Rule Book and the Working Manual for Rail Staff.

Purpose

The purpose of this Network Rail standard and the processes within the Reporting and Investigation Manual is:

a) To provide a consistent, comprehensive and structured process:

  • for the reporting of accidents and incidents;
  • for the investigation of accidents and incidents in order to prevent, or reduce the risk of, their recurrence, without apportioning blame or liability;
  • that enables information obtained from investigations to be shared with, and used by, organisations with a direct responsibility for maintaining, or improving railway safety.

b) So that:

  • the requirements of Railway Group Standards GO/RT3119 and GE/RT8047 are met;
  • accurate information is provided to the safety management information system (SMIS);
  • action plans from investigation reports are accepted by the responsible designated competent person (DCP) for managing their implementation, tracking and closure once complete;
  • recommendations from investigation reports, including those carried out by other parties, are systematically considered, implemented where appropriate, and tracked to completion;

c) To assist in:

  • assessing safety risks;
  • monitoring safety performance and compliance with Network Rail's Health and Safety Management System (HSMS
