Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, the Government, industry, and the academia, particularly the AESJ, are respectively analyzed to show where the problem lay in the system and the nature of the problem to maintain and improve safety in Japan before the accident and how to improve the same problem in future based on analysis and evaluation results of the accident described in Chap.  6.
