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.
These issues are supported by investigation reports, Board safety concerns and recommendations. Some of them have been on the Watchlist since 2010, and all of them require a concerted effort from the regulator and industry stakeholders to resolve.
Runway incursions lead to an ongoing risk of aircraft colliding with vehicles or other aircraft.
Commercial fishing safety
Over the past 30 years, the TSB has been sounding the alarm over the numerous safety deficiencies in commercial fishing.
Following railway signal indications
Train crews do not consistently recognize and follow railway signals. This poses a risk of train collisions or derailments that can have catastrophic consequences.
Runway overruns continue to pose a risk to people, property, and the environment.
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.
Unplanned/uncontrolled movement of rail equipment
Unplanned and uncontrolled movements of rail equipment create high-risk situations that may have catastrophic consequences.
