The purpose of our Safety Digest is to share important safety messages quickly.

These are published when we have decided not to undertake a full investigation for any of the following reasons:

  • the safety learning has already been covered by a previous recommendation or will be addressed by an ongoing investigation
  • the safety learning mainly relates to compliance with existing rules, procedures or standards
  • the safety learning has a narrow application.
