Abstract The Science Council of Japan and Japanese victims family groups have advanced opinions as to how to carry out accident investigations better than before. This paper attempts to analyse the following points: (1) the purpose of accident investigation; (2) priorities in such investigations; (3) should human errors in organizations be tackled through criminal law?; (4) use of accident investigation reports in trials; (5) the hiring of human factor specialists as investigators and commission members; (6) the use of various models of human factors.
