After the restructuring of the TCDD, almost all of the railway construction, maintenance-repair and other works are built into the private sector by direct procurement or tendering. The fact that the private sector firms do not employ sufficient number and qualified personnel during these works and the necessary precautions are not taken within the scope of Occupational Health and Safety causes such accidents and invites new accidents.
Just last month (on the date of 12.01.2018) a worker lost his life due to high voltages in the substation located in Kirklareli Büyükmandıra town of Edirne, where he was the conductor of TCDD Edirne Electrification. In the aftermath of this work accident, new accidents continue to be experienced despite warnings about unfair assignments that negatively affect occupational health and safety.
The main responsible for this accident; the restructuring of TCDD by ignoring our preventive security measures, ignoring our warnings and ignoring our warnings. Then, meaningless workplace mergers and unassuming appointments are the management approaches that insist on and employ a lot of people by not employing sufficient number of control staff.
We call on TCDD management to take necessary measures to prevent such accidents.
