Recipient Name
On 27 March 2024 the Commission recommended that KiwiRail review and improve the training given to track workers, to include identification of the risks associated with:
1. operating a HRV unsupervised when travelling to worksites
2. a HRV cab being a safety-critical area, to enable them to operate a HRV safely

This recommendation is accepted. We are engaging with our Learning and Development team regarding course content for HRV operators, with a focus on the safety critical environment of the HRV cab when ontrack and understanding of risks (safe travel distance/speed/emergency braking/radio calling) when travelling under TPBM to a worksite.
