Opening the Safety Transmission Center at Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works
MHI opened a facility for providing education on work safety in October 2010. The facility, called the Safety Transmission Center at the Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works, is dedicated to the Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works' resolution not to let any fatal accidents occur in its production operations. The facility consists of two zones: the Accident Case Studies Zone, where videos and displays show employees how accidents happen and what to do to prevent them, and the Human Error Study Zone, where employees can learn, in a hands-on format and using real-life examples, the principles that trigger human error and how to identify risks before accidents occur.
The Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works is working to cultivate in its workforce a sensitivity to hazards and a culture of safety by using the Safety Transmission Center as a place where all employees, from managers to operators, can learn nearly firsthand the horror of accidents and the pain they cause, and decide for themselves what they can and should do to prevent them.
