Aviation Investigation Report A98H0003

4.0  Safety Action

Based on the safety deficiencies identified in this occurrence, the Board has issued a series of safety communications. Initiatives undertaken by others to enhance safety have also been identified. This part presents the following information:

  • Safety actions taken—initiatives undertaken by aviation regulatory authorities and others;
  • Safety actions required—recommendations the Board considers necessary to address systemic safety deficiencies posing the highest risk; and
  • Safety concerns—issues the Board has deemed do not warrant recommendations at this time but that provide a marker to the industry and regulatory authorities.

Those issues dealing with systemic safety deficiencies are communicated to government aviation regulators, the aviation industry, and the public in the form of an Aviation Safety Recommendation (ASR). Safety deficiencies that are deemed to present lesser risks are communicated through either an Aviation Safety Advisory (ASA) or an Aviation Safety Information Letter (ASIL). In addition, informal communications with various stakeholders and the provision of public briefings complement the Transportation Safety Board of Canada's (TSB) formal safety communications.
