Safety Charter

We, ever mindful of the railway accident that occurred on April 25, 2005, conscious of our responsibility for protecting the truly precious lives of our customers, and based on the conviction that ensuring safety is our foremost mission, establish this Safety Charter.

  • 1Safety is ensured primarily through understanding and complying with rules and regulations, a strict execution of each individual's duty, and improvements in technology and expertise, and built up through ceaseless efforts.
  • 2The most important actions for ensuring safety are to execute basic motions, to rigorously enforce safety checks, and to implement flawless communication.
  • 3To ensure safety, we must make a concerted effort, irrespective of our organizational affiliation, rank or assignment.
  • 4When uncertain about a decision, we must choose the most assuredly safe action.
  • 5Should an accident occur, our top priorities are to prevent concomitant accidents, and to aid passengers.
