In late 2021, Federal and State Transport Ministers endorsed ONRSR’s policy to mandate in-cab audio and video on mainline passenger and freight trains.
This policy will provide for access to recordings by ONRSR, ATSB, Police and Coroners when undertaking investigations, and when operators are directed to undertake an investigation under the Rail Safety National Law.
The installation of in-cab audio and video recording devices will have significant safety benefits allowing for a better understanding of the circumstances of an incident, facilitating learnings and mitigating the likelihood of similar incidents occurring in the future.
