MEDIA ADVISORY - Advancing Transportation Safety in Canada: Risks and Opportunities

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 5, 2015) - Canada has one of the safest transportation systems in the world. But that doesn't mean things can't be safer. To that end, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) recently released its 2014 Watchlist which identifies those issues posing the greatest risk to Canada's transportation system. The goal is to create a "blueprint for change," focusing the attention of the regulators and transportation industry on the key problems that need addressing today.

TSB Chair Kathy Fox will speak about what happens when safety isn't managed effectively, why investing in safety makes good business sense, and why the TSB Watchlist issues must be addressed - especially in the wake of the high-profile tragedy in Lac-Mégantic, and public concern over the shipment of flammable liquids by rail.

DATE: Thursday, February 5th, 2015
