Transportation Is Becoming Safer In Canada
Canadian employers are greatly concerned with transportation accidents. These accidents mainly affect, but are not limited to, marine, aviation, railway and pipeline industries. Although the numbers fluctuate annually, statistics show accidents have decreased over time. This positive change largely stems from increased concern from health and safety professionals and enhanced regulations.
Due to ongoing efforts from the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, the decrease in accidents and incidents can be attributed to an increase in awareness from the Canadian Transportation Accident Investigation and Safety Board Act and the Transportation Safety Board Regulations. The following statistics show evidence of the downward trend resulting from these acts and regulations.
Updated regulations lead to fewer accidents and incidents over time. The evidence above shows that continued efforts to create safer working environments are leading to more workers returning safely to their families every day.
