Human Performance Improve Activities in JANSI  
JANSI assistances for Utility QA activities, such as assistance for the developing Japanese QA standards of JEAC4111 and JEAG4121, which are based on ISO9001 and customized for nuclear facilities according to IAEA GSR-part 2 recommendation. 
Committees are managed by JANSI; 
  • QMS Committee 
   Resolution of common issues on QA by nuclear operators. Consider response policies to issues, share information on overseas QA activities and consider introduction into Japan in pursuit of excellence. 
   ■ Human Factor Committee 
     Reducing human errors and improving human performance. Consider measures for human error reduction, survey activities in other industries, and develop safety awareness posters. Made Human performance improving handbook and held a lecture for that. 
   ■ RCA Committee 
     Improving the effectiveness of Root Cause Analysis (RCA).             RCA training (introduction, skill improvement), case study meetings, create training videos for interviewers. 
Fukushima-Daiichi Accident Analysis from Good Practice Viewpoint  
Whereas the direction which discusses the safety from the accident analysis, a new trend of analytical methods such as resilience engineering, high-reliability organization, or risk literacy research, which analyze the various events by focusing on the good practices, are becoming popular. 
Various good cases of resilience response were observed in the individual base and also in the organizational base in Fukushima-Daiichi accident as below: 
  • The effectiveness of insight and of the risk evaluation on accident cases, such as inundations in LeBlayais and Madras plants, and September 11 terrorism and B.5.b.order from US Nuclear Regulatory Commission to keep the plant in safe condition even natural disasters or acts of terrorism occurred, 
  • The decision of continuation of seawater infusion (individual base). 
  • Reflection of the experience on Chuetsu-Oki Earthquake, 
  • Improvement of seismic base isolation building equipped emergency power system and air conditioning system, which was effectively used for emergency response facility (on-site of organizational base), 
  • Deployment of fire engines, which was effectively used for water infusion (on-site of organizational base). 
  • The effectiveness of command system in ordinal time due to training (on-site of organizational base),
