Minister calls for mandatory safety devices on nursery school buses

送迎バスに安全装置の設置義務化を指示 小倉大臣

TOKYO, Sep 30 (NHK) - Japan's children's policy minister has told government officials to take steps to require that nursery school buses be equipped with safety devices to prevent children from being locked inside alone, unnoticed.

Ogura Masanobu gave the instruction on Thursday at a meeting of government ministries and offices on ways to ensure children's safety.

The move follows the death of a 3-year-old girl from heatstroke early this month, after she was left inside a kindergarten bus in Shizuoka Prefecture.

Ogura told the officials that safety devices should be mandatory on buses of about 16,000 childcare facilities across the nation, such as nursery schools and kindergartens.

He also instructed them to draw up guidelines on how such devices should work, as well as manuals on safely operating school buses. ...continue reading
