Efforts in Improvement of Rolling Stock Safety

This paper describes how JR East has placed safety as the top-priority management issue since the company's establishment and it has been making efforts to build a railway system that customers can use with peace of mind. The company has been proceeding from fiscal 2009 with "2013 Safety Vision", its five year safety plan. The challenge of achieving "no accidents involving injures or fatalities of passengers and employees" has been the constant target for the ultimate level of safety. Collisions, derailments, overturns, door-related accidents and train fires are well known as incidents in the field of rolling stock that could result in serious accidents.
