Well if the ITSR is not happy about the SMS of a heritage organisation the onus should be on the ITSR to provide the paperwork, or at least a template that could easily be applied to a non-profit organisation. The aim of the any safety system should be to provide a reasonable level of safety, not send organisations to the wall through unreasonable costs of compliance. Laying down and accepting the status quo is not the way to get any unacceptable situation changed.
Thank goodness all safety people on the rail systems are not as bloody minded as some on this group. No one was really hurt in the incident at ZZ but a similar incident in the Hunter Valley resulted in the death of a plant operator and I did not see the Hunter Rail system being closed down. Has to be some equity in the application of any compliance system.
I am aware a national system is coming soon but I do not see what that will change the situation all that much. You know CSB & now ASB, all just different acronyms.
