190 The accident at Waterloo and the Cardiff East Junction incident resulted from
people taking actions which were inconsistent with the processes in which they
had been assessed as competent. Had these processes been followed, the
events would have been prevented. The RAIB found no evidence that the staff
and organisations involved at Waterloo and Cardiff lacked a commitment to
safety. In this respect, the RAIB’s findings at Waterloo and Cardiff have much in
common with this extract from the Hidden report [i.e. the Clapham Junction accident] chapter 17 ‘Where things went

I don't think it's conjecture. There were distinct similarities, at least behaviourally, between both these cases and Clapham, and both resulted in the safety systems becoming ineffective. Yet all 3 were carried out by people and organisations who were absolutely committed to safety. RAIB's point is that the corporate memory is disappearing as the Clapham generation reaches retiring age, and something needs to be done about that. (They're not alone in that conclusion; Roger Ford effectively said the same in his analysis of RAIB's interim report.)
