ATSB Chief Commissioner Greg Hood, TAIC Chief Commissioner Jane Meares, and Commissioners from both agencies, shared information regrding transport safety trends and discussed several high-profile investigations.
During the meeting, the Chief Commissioners signed a revised Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), reinstating that in case of a major accident, each agency will be ready to offer support and assistance.
Chief Commissioner Hood said that this visit helped the two agencies learn from each other's investigation experiences and added that:
While we go about this in our own ways, it is valuable to understand how a different approach can bring different insights and strengths to an investigation. It was also helpful to discuss the challenges we both encounter during investigations, and the ways in which we overcome them.
