Thematic study on accidents and serious railway incidents related to the contact line

Description

Several notifications of accidents and serious incidents have been recorded, where workers have got in contact with the contact lines during maintenance or construction work.

The registrations apply to both work on the contact line plant and other electric power work on the infrastructure. On the basis of the registrations, The Accident Investigation Board Norway has decided to carry out a thematic study which covers several of these accidents and serious incidents.

The investigation will clarify the sequence of events and identify possible causal factors. Any underlying conditions that may have contributed to the accident will be mapped and analysed.
