NTSB releases annual list of 'most wanted' safety improvements


Last week, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) unveiled its annual “Most Wanted List,” which identifies the most critical transportation safety issues the board believes should be addressed.

The list includes addressing human fatigue, requiring safety management systems, improving runway safety, and requiring image and onboard data recorders.

The NTSB began issuing an annual “Most Wanted List” in 1990. The current list is the first one developed under a revised format aimed at modernizing and streamlining the list.

“The NTSB's ability to influence transportation safety depends on our ability to communicate and advocate for changes," said NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman in a prepared statement. “The ‘Most Wanted List’ is the most powerful tool we have to highlight our priorities.”
