During the summer, numerous construction sites were open to carry out maintenance works on underground line 2; the local RSU have repeatedly highlighted in writing various problems related to the poor assessment of the risks of these construction sites and the impact on the operation in terms of safety, in addition to the insufficient timing of communications to the personnel working on the plants.
We consider the event that took place yesterday in Bussero station to be very serious, since only by pure fatality a massacre did not take place: the accidents that occur on the subway have become routine.
We find it disconcerting that the persons in charge of risk assessment have made it possible to carry out works of this magnitude without providing for the stoppage of traffic in violation, among other things, of a formal Service Order of the competent Operations Management.CopyAMP code.
We will immediately ask ATM for an urgent call for clarification on the matter, both with regard to yesterday’s accident and on the procedures for planning and evaluating construction sites at a general level.
We cannot accept that a leading company in the sector, such as ATM, contracts maintenance work without supervising all the safety measures to protect workers directly involved in site work and, consequently, the safety of passengers as well as workers. of ATM.
