The Railway Safety Regulator (RSR) has issued the Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) with a Temporary Safety Permit valid from 2 – 31 August 2018.

The RSR said they believe that the issuance of a Temporary Safety Permit will assist PRASA in continuing with their operations, but most importantly, provide PRASA with another opportunity to develop robust action plans that will address the identified inadequacies.

The RSR issued PRASA with a Contravention Notice for operating trains on 1 August 2018 without being in possession of a valid Safety Permit.

“It is the RSR’s legislative obligation, as an authority responsible for overseeing rail safety, to ensure that operators demonstrate the highest levels of commitment towards the safety of railway operations customers, staff, contractors, visitors and others who may be affected by its railway operations,” said the regulator.
