Railway safety - Assessment of Railtrack's response to improvement notice I/RJS/991007/2 covering the "top 22" signals passed most often at danger
This report presents the results of an audit into the measures taken by the railway infrastructure operating company in the United Kingdom (Railtrack) to mitigate the risks of signals passed repeatedly at danger (SPAD) for the 22 signals that had been passed most often at danger between 1990 and 1998. Each of the 22 signals were viewed from the drivers' cab and discussed with the drivers and representatives of the train operating companies. It is expected that the Train Protection and Warning Systems (TPWS) currently being installed will significantly improve safety.

Role of work permits in teen workers' experiences
Although work permits are required when employing teenagers under the age of 18 in 41 US states, compliance is not total. Little is known about the work experience of young workers with work permits compared with those without such permits. This study examines job hazards, training and knowledge of child labour laws reported by students in a predominantly Hispanic high school in Los Angeles and compares the responses of those who obtained work permits with those who did not. Data from responses to a questionnaire were supplemented with information from focus groups and a survey of work permits carried out by the school. It was found that students without work permits were more likely to perform hazardous tasks and to use certain types of dangerous equipment and less likely to receive health and safety training. Possible explanations for the findings and suggested areas in need of policy change or research are considered.

The efficacy of construction site safety inspections
In this article, the impact of on-site safety inspections on the frequency of work-related injury and death in the Alberta (Canada) construction sector between 1987 and 1992 was measured. Data are broken down by industry sub-segment, allowing different risk levels to be associated with different work activities. There was a significant decrease in inspection activity during the study period. It was found that on-site safety inspections had no effect on the risk of accident and injury but did have a positive effect in reducing the number of work-related fatalities.

An evaluation of industrial ventilation branch screening methods for obstructions in working exhaust systems
Methods in identifying obstructed branches in industrial ventilation systems are divided into two categories: pressure comparisons and pressure ratio comparisons. The first compares measured static pressures with the corresponding design static pressures or previously measured pressures. The second compares the ratios of two measured pressures. Data were collected from 6 industrial ventilation systems. Each one was tested for naturally occurring or deliberately inserted obstructions. The pressure ratio method was substantially superior for the detection of obstructions.

Best practice for risk based inspection as a part of plant integrity management
This report discusses the best practice for the application of Risk Based Inspection (RBI) for the inspection of pressure equipment and systems that are subject to the requirements for in-service examination under the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR). It can also apply to equipment and systems containing hazardous materials that are inspected as a means to comply with the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations (COMAH, see CIS 00-24). The report considers the application, data requirements, team competences, inspection plan (including NDT techniques and reliability) and overall management of the RBI process. An audit tool is given in the Appendices order to assist the evaluation the RBI process. This contains a flow diagram followed by a series of questions and a commentary relating to each stage, outlining the proposed best practice.

Advantages and limits of safety audits
Intérêts et limites de l'audit de sécurité [in French]
This article compares safety audits with other types of audits (financial, legal and social), and presents an overview of some of the key steps required during the implementation of a safety audit. The results of two studies, whose objective was to examine the practical aspects of safety audits and to highlight the advantages and limitations of these tools, are presented. Recommendations are made with respect to the design of documents used either during the safety audit or during the follow-up of proposals made as a result of the audit, so as to improve their consistency and enhance the overall credibility of the approach.

Audits of occupational hazard prevention systems
Las auditorías de los sistemas de prevención de riesgos laborales [in Spanish]
Audits for controlling occupational hazard management systems are derived from accounting and quality audits. This article defines the concept of safety audits and distinguishes between audits that are required by law and voluntary audits, such as those that are conducted with a view of obtaining certification or accreditation, based on standards or management models. The article reviews various existing standards and presents the ILO guidelines for occupational safety and health management systems.
