Name: Pickstock, Graeme (0070589) Licence category: 1.4.230 Signalling Maintainer & Fault Finder. Date of revocation 06.08.20. Details of complaint: A code 2 AWS fault occurred at signal PN315 (horn vice bell). A fault team attended and found wiring defects in location HH19/3. Graeme Pickstock had been responsible for the work in accordance with a SMTH test plan list issued by the Section Supervisor prior to the work. The investigation found that the work had not been satisfactorily tested and that Graeme Pickstock had carried out both the installation and testing work in contravention of the independence requirements of SMTH. The subsequent investigation found that Graeme Pickstock had failed to maintain independence between installation and testing, completing both himself. The installation had not been satisfactorily tested and had been returned to operational service with incorrectly run, unterminated and uninsulated wires, some of which were live and left hanging unrestrained.
