Abstract

The development of human resources is of prime importance for safety and security management of worldwide process safety environment. Recently, including the severe accident of the Fukushima nuclear power plants, we faced several accidents continually in large industrial facilities in Japan. Property loss and human losses due to accidents of large-scale facilities has remained at a high level. One of the major causes of accidents is advanced automation for labor saving. As a result the burden of workers is increased. There is a higher possibility that human error will occur. A steady and sustainable safety culture is more important for future generations. This paper will describe our ongoing efforts in safety education and safety engineering in Japan.
