Safety in the skies : personnel and parties in NTSB aviation accident investigations by Cynthia C Lebow( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent high-profile commercial aviation mishaps have stretched the National Transportation Safety Board's resources to the limit and are testing the agency's ability to unravel the sorts of complex failures that lead to tragic accidents. In recognizing the enormous challenges the NTSB faces, agency Chairman Jim Hall sought a critical examination of the NTSB's ability to investigate major transportation accidents, and in particular commercial aviation accidents. The results of that study are contained in this report, the most comprehensive examination of the workings of the NTSB in the 30-year history of the agency. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, RAND used a variety of quantitative and qualitative research techniques to assess the NTSB's operations and processes. This research, conducted in RAND's Institute for Civil Justice, outlines recommendations aimed at: strengthening the party process-which involves manufacturers, operators, and others in the determination of the probable cause of an accident; expanding the statement of causation; modernizing the NTSB's investigative procedures and streamlining its internal processes; managing the agency's resources and staffing more effectively; developing training opportunities for NTSB staff; and improving the agency's R & D facilities

Collision of tractor/cargo tank semitrailer and passenger vehicle and subsequent fire, Yonkers, New York, October 9, 1997 by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On October 9, 1997, about 12:10 a.m., a truck tractor pulling a cargo tank semitrailer was going under an overpass of the New York State Thruway when it was struck by a sedan. The car hit the right side of the cargo tank in the area of the tank's external loading/unloading lines, releasing the gasoline they contained. The ensuring fire destroyed both vehicles and the overpass; the thruway remained closed for approximately 6 months. The driver of the car was killed; the driver of the truck was not injured. Property damage was estimated at $7 million. The safety issue discussed in this report is the danger of operating a truck when its cargo tank's loading lines are carrying hazardous materials. As a result of its investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board issued a safety recommendation to the Secretary of Transportation
