Guaranteeing the safety of students and both academic and administrative staff is the most crucial issue in facility maintenance at the national university corporations and other institutions that form the infrastructure of education research activities. The Great East Japan Earthquake has reminded us of the importance of earthquake countermeasures for facilities. In addition to measures for making structures more earthquake-resistant, measures for preventing the fall of non-structural objects, such as ceilings and lights, are considered to be important.
