Fear led to Network Rail RIDDOR irregularities

Network RailA recent artilce in SHP states "Hundreds of workplace injuries were not declared by Network Rail over a five-year period because staff and contractors were fearful of the consequences if they reported them, an independent report has concluded".

We all know that many accidents go unreported and what we see is 'the tip of the iceberg'. Its a shame though as it makes a mockery of yearly statistics.
