Watchlist: Air transportation safety
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada’s (TSB) Watchlist identifies the key safety issues that need to be addressed to make Canada’s transportation system even safer.
The issues on this list are supported by a combination of investigation reports, Board safety concerns and Board recommendations. All of them, however, require a concerted effort from the regulator and industry stakeholders.
Runway overruns continue to pose a risk to people, property, and the environment.
Risk of collisions from runway incursions
Runway incursions lead to an ongoing risk of aircraft colliding with vehicles or other aircraft.
Some transportation operators in the air, marine, and rail sectors are not managing their safety risks effectively.
Crews often work long and irregular schedules, which poses a significant risk.
Regulatory surveillance has not always proven effective at verifying whether operators are, or have become, compliant with regulations and able to manage the safety of their operations.
