9780115509469: Railway Safety 1988: Report on the Safety Record of the Railways in Great Britain

This report to the Secretary of State for Transport and the Health and Safety Commission is prepared annually and examines events during the year, and various aspects of railway safety. The worst railway disaster for many years happened at Clapham Junction during 1988 - 35 people, including one of the train drivers, lost their lives and nearly 500 passengers were injured, 69 seriously. Additionally, the Inspectorate's main preoccupation in 1988 was to respond to obvious public concern about railway safety in the aftermath of the King's Cross fire. A renewed effort to recruit more Inspectors was made, which was well on the way to success by the end of 1988. As usual, the report also contains a chapter devoted to the Inspectorate's work as the enforcing authority for railways under the Health and Safety at Work legislation.
