    Review on the Safety Management System of Facilities Handling Hazardous Chemicals under the Chemicals Control Act

    신창현 | Chung Soo Lee | 강재은 and 4other persons | 2015, 11(7) | pp.19~33 | number of Cited : 14
    According to the inspection results in 2013, domestic facilities handling hazardous chemicals are very vulnerable to chemical accidents. Moreover, the management of facilities and safety equipment is considerably weak. The 30 percent of chemical accidents occurring after 2003 resulted from the poor safety management of facilities and would have been preventable if appropriate safety measures had been taken. Therefore, the Chemicals Controls Act has significantly reinforced the safety management including facilities, compared to the previous standard, the Toxic Chemicals Control Act. The facilities under the Chemicals Control Act are classified as manufacture․usage, storage, vehicle, pipe that present detailed and concrete safety standards. Storage facilities are also categorized as indoor, outdoor, underground facilities that are special for prevention respectively. These improved safety standards of facilities are expected to be used at the workplace for the definite prevention guideline of chemical accidents. That being said, additional studies have to be conducted in the future both to avoid merely redundant regulations of other laws and to obtain differentiated safety standards differently applicable to toxic chemicals and dangerous chemicals such as fire or explosion.

    Institutional Improvements on Korean Comprehensive Plans for the Reduction of Damage from Storm and Flood

    Kim, Ja Eun | Hyungjun Park | LEE,SUNG-HO and 1other persons | 2015, 11(7) | pp.35~49 | number of Cited : 4
    This research suggested that the establishment of Korean National Comprehensive Plans for the Reduction of Damage from Storm and Flood can help the current status and enhance the role of natural hazard planning in South Korea. Recently, it is important to make a plan include not only structural strategies but also non-structural strategies to conserve the environment and make resilient community. Nevertheless, in South Korea, natural hazard planning has not paid attention to national plan for flood and storm, regional approach and land use planning method. Negotiations with experts and civic servants worked towards setting an agenda and we developed alternatives that reflected the agenda. The National Plan should improve its status, cooperate with related plans, and enhance connectivity with spatial plans. Therefore, the plan supports the establishment of the national vision-goal-strategy, the complementary procedure between top-down and bottom-up methods, and the regional mitigation strategies that consider urban planning.

    Yung Wook Kim | Hyun-nie Ahn | Ham Seungkyung | 2015, 11(7) | pp.51~77 | number of Cited : 8
    Abstract PDF
    This paper explores how frames were constructed in news on the Sewol ferry disaster and associations between news frames and other variables such as political orientation of newspapers, news sources, news fairness, and disaster reporting guidelines. The main frames used in news on the Sewol ferry disaster were the cause and responsibility, human interest, conflict, and countermeasures frames. Different frames were used depending on the political orientation of newspaper organizations. The cause and responsibility, moral, human interest and community’s atonement frames were used more often in progressive newspapers significantly than in conservative newspapers, but the conflict, economic loss, and solution frames were more often used in conservative papers than in progressive newspapers. News sources used in the disaster news differed by frames. The government was used as a news source primarily in the cause and responsibility frame and the National Assembly was used most in the conflict frame. An analysis on the news fairness index that consists of diversity of news sources and balancing viewpoints shows that the fairness level of the cause and responsibility frame was similar to the fairness level of the human interest frame. Among the disaster reporting guidelines, emotional expressions were more often violated in progressive papers than in conservative newspapers. Furthermore, emotional expressions were more often violated in the cause and responsibility frame than in other frames.

In addition, 73% of participants voluntarily applied the army. The average of degree of social support promoting behaviors was 102.7(13.96)(range 54-139). The average of degree of social support was 63.3(9.13)(range 31-75). Higher economic status (F=1.23, p<.05) and better health status (F=1.23, p<.001) were associated with higher degree of health promoting behaviors. In addition, participants who made sure of the pathways after discharge (F=1.23, p<.001) were positively associated with higher degree of health promoting behaviors. Level of health state was significantly associated with degree of social support (F=1.23, p<.01). Health-promoting behaviors were correlated with social support from family (r = .32, p < .001), friends (r = .39, p < .001) and fellow soldiers (r = .43, p < .001). The results of this study show the relationship between health-promoting behaviors and social support. Because fellow soldiers are the most available social support group for the soldiers, it is necessary to enhance the social support system with peers in the army.
