Occurrence   a transportation accident or incident

Recommendation   a formal way to draw attention to systemic safety issues, normally warranting ministerial attention

1.   While the Board's operations are for the 2007-2008 fiscal year, occurrence statistics are for the 2007 calendar year unless otherwise indicated. Please note that, in a live database, the occurrence data are constantly being updated. Consequently, the statistics can change slightly over time. Comparisons are generally to the last 5 or 10 years. For definitions of terms such as accident, incident and occurrence, see Appendix B.

2.   Investigations are considered complete after the final report has been issued. See Appendix A for a list of reports released by the TSB in 2007-2008 by sector.

3.   For definitions of terms such as recommendation, safety advisory and safety information letter, see Appendix B.

4.   Pipeline accident rates after 2003 reflect the impact of clarifications to the pipeline industry of the TSB's accident and incident reporting requirements, and of internal adjustments to the data in TSB's Pipeline Occurrence Database.

5.   Because accident statistics (derailments since 2001) have been adjusted in light of clarifications to industry of TSB's reporting requirements, historical rail accident rates after 2001 have been updated accordingly.
