An interesting article about safety training for Shinkansen maintenance crews:

Premise is that they need to feel the train whizzing by at 300 kph to appreciate the importance of their work after an untightened bold came loose on the supertrain a while back.

Wow, this is terrible.

That's quite smart and also absolutely terrifying. If I were training for that job and found out that that was part of it, I think I would look for a different job. Maybe I'm just a coward, though.

So long as it's safely conducted, I think there is value in letting the maintenance crew understand that what they are working on in a static environment isn't static out in real life - far from it.

 

On that note, though, you can't tie a mechanic to the nose of an airplane for him to appreciate his job. :D
