NTSB restores online safety recommendations database


The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recently restored web access to its safety recommendations database, which had been offline for about five months.

Accessible at, the database has been audited and verified, and features a few non-visible changes designed to improve information accuracy, according to the NTSB.

The board is requesting that all freight and passenger railroads, transit agencies, government bodies and rail associations search the safety recommendations database for open-status recommendations and provide an update for each. To date, the database includes 13,450 total safety recommendations, 2,156 railroad and transit recommendations, and 239 open-status recommendations from railroads, transit agencies, governments and associations, according to the NTSB.
