There are many factors which specify the place of the work and kind of job. Among these factors, these factors are closely related with safety. "Safety Climate" is consciousness and attitude for these factors. We analyzed the contents of the items used by the past investigations, and conducted an investigation by which the importance of these contents were evaluated. We developed a technique to evaluate the safety climate of the place of work based on these analysis and results of the investigation. Furthermore, we reviewed many past researches and exam-ined the subjects for the safety climate research which should be studied in the future. Source

An experience-based software was developed to help prevent human errors using point and call checks. The five functions comprising point and call checks help prevent human error. Learners were able to experience each error prevention function by going through tasks in the developed software, which corresponded to the five abovementioned functions. The effectiveness of this software in the training for conductors and train operators was also validated. The respective mean subjective ratings for the five functions in point and call checks before and after training were compared. The result indicated that the learners were more convinced of the method's effectiveness after the training than before it. Some railway companies use this software in their safety education and training programs. Source

A coaching technique was developed to train drivers in operational safety. First, drivers took part in a self-assessment of their attention characteristics. Drivers were able to identify their weak points in the feedback, and were given the opportunity to think of possible ideas to prevent errors. In order to draw more ideas, group discussions were held. Managers then conducted interviews with their drivers using the coaching technique, and encouraged them to deepen their ideas to prevent errors. The validity of this technique was discussed based on results from follow up questionnaires given to the drivers. Source
