Ahead of ‘going live’ later this month, major upgrades to the Tram Accident and Incident Reporting (TAIR) system have been given the green light by a team of light rail safety professionals.
Members of the TAIR Implementation Group, which includes representatives from several major networks, have signed off the latest version of the enhanced system that’s set to deliver a major boost to tram safety.
Led by the Light Rail Safety and Standards Board, consultants and software developers have worked closely with operators to ensure the upgrades meet the requirement for an effective centralised platform that gathers data for incident reporting, analysis and risk modelling.
Carl Williams, LRSSB Chief Executive, commented: “Following a thorough evaluation by the Implementation Group we are now ready to enter the final phase of the landmark project.
“This includes wider testing by other operators across the UK, using real data, and the development of a digital training tool and support videos for operators as they adopt the new system.
“Once these are in place, we expect the enhanced TAIR system to become fully operational within a few weeks.”
