2013 Safety Vision

This paper describes how securing safety and having passengers use trains with peace of mind are top priorities. However, in October 2004, the first derailment of a Shinkansen train in commercial service occurred because of the Mid Niigata Prefecture Earthquake. And, at the end of 2005, five passengers died and many others were injured in a derailment accident on the Uetsu main line. Those and other accidents show that there are still many issues to overcome. In light of these circumstances, on April 1, 2009, the "2013 Safety Vision", a new safety vision with a goal of "no accidents involving injuries or fatalities of passengers and employees" was launched and this paper introduces that vision.
