Question

Further to my unanswered Question 2019/8807 from 16 May 2019, a news report published shortly after showed a tram driver filmed asleep at the controls on 19 May 2017. In response a First Group Representative was quoted as saying ""Over the past few months we have put in place additional measures to increase awareness of fatigue amongst our drivers, including individual briefings by our management, and we will continue to reinforce this."https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/sadiq-khan-croydon-tram-driver-asleep-first-group-crash-derailment-mayor-london-a7744371.html. What “additional measures” were put in place to increase awareness of fatigue amongst its drivers after 9 November 2016 and before 19 May 2017?
