Australia and Canada to review and compare investigation processes

I welcome the Australian Transport Safety Bureau’s actions in inviting the Canadian Transportation Safety Bureau to undertake an independent review of the ATSB’s investigation methodologies and processes.

The review, to begin this month, will provide the ATSB with valuable insights and identify best practices from both organisations to improve the way in which the organisation undertakes investigations.

This will be a transparent process with the report to be made available to the public early next year.

The safety and security of the travelling public is the Federal Government’s number one aviation priority and a focus on continuous improvement by Australia’s aviation safety agencies is critical to this goal.
