On the night of 1 November 2014, as work was taking place to replace corroded rails, two Ironmen were involved in a runaway which led to the equipment travelling at speed through several level crossings; both vehicle and pedestrian. Fortunately no-one was seriously injured, but in different circumstances this could have been a fatality rather than a near miss.
To reinforce our commitment to ‘Everyone Home Safe Every Day’, the business will host one hour learning events across the organisation and contractor community to look at the circumstances surrounding the Ironmen runaway at Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen, Wales.
We ask you to schedule and host your own meetings, or attend those already booked and communicated. Each area of the business has been provided with their own timeframes for delivery.
