The Local Safety Diagnosis System integrates safety-related statistics that government agencies and public institutions had previously managed on their own, and makes them available to local governments. It also provides tools for local governments to diagnose and analyze the local safety level in their respective areas. The system also discloses safety indices based on safety related statistics.
Various safety statistics are used to compute local safety indices in seven key areas, i.e. traffic accidents, fires, crimes, safety accidents, suicides, and infectious diseases. These are further classified into one of five levels and disclosed to the public. Local governments can use the Local Safety Diagnosis System and local safety indices to identify local risk factors in their areas for improvement, and the central government offers consulting. Such efforts have resulted in the mitigation of negligent accidents in each area.
