All notifiable accidents and incidents associated with the operation of a rail vehicle, the use of the railway infrastructure or the use of railways premises require a Rail accident/incident notification form to be submitted to the Transport Agency within three working days.
When submitting the online form, one of the required fields is called ‘Severity rating’. This field contains a drop-down menu that gives you the following options:
1 – Accident and/or significant incident
2 – Incident that placed people/property at risk
3 – Incident that could have placed people/property at risk
4 – Not sure if notifiable, but notifying in case
