Abstract

Psychological aptitude tests, which are highly suitable for securing the currently required levels of safety, contribute to the establishment of a safer railway environment. We carried out four new tests on 1,484 train operation staff (aged 18 - 63) and analyzed the correlation between the results of the current/new tests and staff members' history of causing railway accidents or transport disorder. A new set of tests was proposed based on the results of this analysis.
