The reduction of consequential train accidents in India to about 1400 in 1964-5 from about 2000/year average during 1957-62 is ascribed to expansion and streamlining the safety organization. Since 68 percent of the accidents were caused by staff failure, the human factor was the main target in the safety program. This program included short orientation courses at safety camps, provision of leaflets and posters, optimizing education and experience with job requirements changing recruitment policy, and introduction of new mechanical and electronic appliances and a safety exhibition.
