…with rules and procedures and deriving a list of the key influencing factors as a basis for developing tools to improve compliance

There is evidence from inquiry reports and from studies performed within the railway and other industries that, although the majority of personnel are conscientious with respect to rules and procedures, incidents have occurred through failure to comply with them.

The research described the factors affecting compliance, the prevalence of non-compliance in the industry and methods likely to succeed in improving compliance. It has delivered a toolkit of practical methods, procedures and guidance that the railway industry can readily use to improve compliance. It is anticipated that through the utilisation of the validated toolkit there will be a reduction in the incidence of non-compliant behaviours and therefore fewer incidents.
