The education system of system safety engineers developed by Nagaoka University of Technology(NUT) has been introduced in the paper. Since safety much be achieved by “The state of the art” technology, career-long education is important. Two education system introduced here, department of system safety and qualification system of “System Safety Engineers”, organize the career-long education.
