The National Transportation Safety Board seeks to ensure that all types
of transportation in the United States are conducted safely. The Board investigates accidents, conducts studies, and makes recommendations to Government agencies, the transportation industry, and others on safety measures and practices.
The National Transportation Safety Board
The Safety Board consists of five
-U.S. civil aviation and certain public-use aircraft accidents;
-railroad accidents in which there is a fatality or substantial property damage, or that involve a passenger train;
--pipeline accidents in which there is a fatality, substantial property damage, or significant injury to the environment;
-highway accidents, including railroad grade-crossing accidents, that the Board selects in cooperation with the States;
-major marine casualties, and marine accidents involving a public vessel and a nonpublic vessel, in accordance with regulations prescribed jointly by the Board and the U.S. Coast Guard; and
-other transportation accidents that are catastrophic, involve problems of a recurring character, or otherwise should be investigated in the judgment of the Board. Safety Problem Identification In addition, the Board makes recommendations on matters pertaining to transportation safety and is a catalyst for transportation accident prevention by conducting safety studies and special investigations, assessing techniques of accident investigation and publishing recommended procedures for these investigations, establishing regulatory requirements for reporting accidents, evaluating the transportation safety consciousness and efficacy of other Government agencies in the prevention of accidents, evaluating the adequacy of safeguards and procedures concerning the transportation of hazardous materials and the performance of other Government agencies charged with ensuring the safe transportation of such materials, and reporting annually to the Congress on its activities. Certificate, Civil Penalty, or License Appeal The Board also reviews on
appeal the suspension, amendment, assessments of civil penalties issued by modification, revocation, or denial of the Secretary or an Administrator of the certain certificates, licenses, or
Department of Transportation.
