Transportation Safety Board releases findings of safety summit

GATINEAU, Que.--The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) has released the proceedings of the Transportation Safety Summit it held this spring. TSB said the summit "opened an unprecedented conversation on key safety issues with 70 industry and government leaders from the marine, pipeline, rail, and aviation sectors". "We all gained insights from sharing our vision of how a robust safety culture and effective information flows can help improve safety management proactively," said TSB Chair Kathy Fox. "It was refreshing to hear from companies that are doing it." The TSB chose "information flow" as the theme of the Summit after a number of its recent investigations revealed risks that had not been addressed because information had not been transmitted effectively or acted upon
