ORR commissioned the Pam Warren Report: Is safety really part of the rail industry’s DNA? following the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Ladbroke Grove Rail Incident in 1999.
This commission was to allow some reflection from an informed passenger’s perspective on the progress made and lessons learnt by industry since the incident.
The whole rail industry can benefit from hearing different perspectives, including those outside of the industry such as Pam Warren’s, on the progress of rail safety since the Public Inquiries in 2000.
This report provides a very useful reminder of the Ladbroke Grove Rail Incident, its aftermath and the Public Inquiries following it.
