Bad Air Day

Posted in Tubeworker's blog on Fri, 09/09/2005 - 14:53,

Still unable to make train radios work reliably, LUL is issuing 'air-wave radios'. The problem is that no-one seems to know what they are or how they work. The company has not properly consulted union health & safety reps or involved them in risk assessments.

Have you been trained in their use? How can you be sure that you will hear a Code Amber? Is this another case of train miles before safety?! Surely not!

It turns out that airwave radios operate on TETRA ie. the same wavelength as Connect - which has already been risk assessed. And management have now agreed to provide traning/briefing on what they are and how to use them.

Just imagine - if they had sorted all this out before dishing them out to staff, there would have been no need for any fuss. Now there's an idea.
