Summer of Safety’s “A Conversation with NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt”

On 06/24/2020, AWO hosted its third event in the Virtual Summer of Safety initiative, “A Conversation with NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt.” During the conversation, Chairman Sumwalt shared with AWO information about the National Transportation Safety Board’s role, specifically that of the Office of Marine Safety, and the agency’s accident investigations, safety studies and development of safety recommendations to improve the nation’s transportation system. Additionally, he offered observations about safety trends in marine transportation and lessons learned from his work with other modes of transportation that translate to the towing industry.
