NCR IMPROVES SAFETY BY 57% OVER LAST FINANCIAL YEAR: RECORDS ZERO ‘SPAD’ BY NCR CREW

NCR IMPROVES SAFETY BY 57% OVER LAST FINANCIAL YEAR: RECORDS ZERO ‘SPAD’ BY NCR CREW

The proactive steps taken by North Central Railway (NCR) in the field of safety in train operations under the Guidance of its GM Shri M.C.Chauhan have yielded handsome results in the financial year 2017-18, which has just closed o­n the 31st of March. As o­n 31st of March, 2018, the safety performance of the Zonal Railway has shown an improvement by 57% which means that the accidents o­n the zone have decline by the same percentage. This improvement in safety has been achieved by:

-Regular weekly safety conferences in which all the safety related issues were discussed threadbare and remedial actions to be taken were advised.

-Launching Mission Zero SPAD (Signal Passing At Danger). Launched in February 2017, this initiative gave spectacular results by achieving Zero SPAD by the Loco Pilots belonging to NCR o­n NCR in the financial year 2017-18.

-Conducting intensive inspections especially night, footplate and surprise inspections by officers and supervisors

-Training and sensitization of frontline staff in safety-related matters

-Improving the asset reliability i.e OHE, Signalling Systems, Rolling Stock and Track

-Eliminating of Level Crossings-both manned and unmanned (During 2017-18, 75 Unmanned and 29 Manned Level Crossings eliminated over NCR)

-Appointing ‘gate mitras’ at 100% Unmanned Level Crossings

-Utilizing the lessons learnt from incidents o­n other railways to prevent similar incidents o­n NCR

-Improving the condition of track by providing material, manpower and blocks for effective maintenance of track.

-Exceeding the performance of last financial year in the field of Through Rail Renewal (TRR) by 54.5%

-Installing state of the art technology like Hot Box Detector, Wheel Impact Load Detector (WILD), Cameras for rolling-examinations, thick web switches, and construction of washable apron with the latest German-RHEDA-technique.

-Educating the public about the hazards of crossing closed boom at LC gates, Roof riding o­n trains, carrying inflammables/explosives etc through audio, visual and print media.

Talking o­n this extraordinary performance, GM/NCR said that safety has always been the main focus area and the topmost priority of Indian Railways & NCR has strived hard throughout the year to ensure that there is substantial improvement in safety as compared to the last financial year. “This year we increased the number of safety drives conducted o­n NCR by nearly 3-fold (22 safety drives in 2017-18 compared to 8 in 2016-17). The steps that we have taken in the last financial year will yield further dividends and we expect more improvement in safety performance in NCR in the new Financial Year 2018-19” he added.
