Transportation Safety Board of Canada releases 2018-19 Annual Report

GATINEAU, QC, July 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada's (TSB) Annual Report for 2018?19 was tabled in Parliament. The report discusses key annual statistics on occurrences in the aviation, marine, rail and pipeline modes of transportation under federal jurisdiction, and how the TSB worked to advance safety for travelers and industry workers in all four sectors across Canada and internationally.

"Advancing safety is all about change, and change is about finding ways to be more efficient as well as effective," said TSB Chair Kathy Fox. "In pursuing this goal, the Board is grateful for the dedication and hard work of TSB staff and the contributions of stakeholders. The safety of Canadians everywhere, and the integrity of our infrastructure and environment, depend on it."

Results for Canadians

The TSB's ongoing efforts to modernize and streamline its investigation process continued to pay dividends in 2018-19.

Watchlist 2018

In October 2018, the TSB released the fifth edition of the Watchlist as a call to action on seven persistent safety issues requiring government and industry attention. The Annual Report illustrates those issues and highlights some of the safety actions required to reduce the underlying risks. It also includes the links to various information and awareness products issued in support of Watchlist 2018.

Other safety communications

Apart from the Watchlist, the TSB issued 63 new safety communications in 2018-19, mostly directed to regulatory agencies and industry stakeholders. Those include 10 recommendations, 1 Board safety concern, 19 safety advisories and 33 safety information letters.

Throughout the year, the Board reassessed the progress achieved on a number of active recommendations. As a result:

Outreach and parliamentary appearances

Throughout the year, TSB investigators, managers and Board members carried out 86 outreach activities across the country, in all four modes, to promote Watchlist 2018 and share safety messages and lessons learned from investigations. TSB senior officials appeared seven times before different parliamentary committees on matters related to transportation safety in Canada.

The Annual Report 2018?19, which is available on the TSB website, includes the list of all investigation reports released during the year with examples of safety actions taken.

The TSB is an independent agency that investigates air, marine, pipeline, and rail transportation occurrences. Its sole aim is the advancement of transportation safety. It is not the function of the Board to assign fault or determine civil or criminal liability.
