    Jong Hyuk Lee | Kwon Seol A | Ryu Sang Il and 2other persons | 2019, 15(8) | pp.1~13 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study suggested how to improve the disaster safety system in South Korea via government-private partnerships in preparation for reunification with North Korea. The results of this study recommended the legal and institutional reform, standardization of disaster terminology, manual generalization, and enhanced disaster safety system reflecting the regional characteristics. In addition, for smooth cooperation for the disaster management and response system between the two Koreas, it would be desirable to establish a more focused strategy on the border area, economic cooperation zones, and the exchange areas instead of a comprehensive strategy in the widespread area. In particular, according to the analytic hierarchy process, the expert groups identified system reform as the most important reform with regards to the disaster management system in preparation for the Korean reunification, followed by policy reform and cooperation system reform.

    LEE YOUHYUN | Hee Ju Hwang | 2019, 15(8) | pp.15~27 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Nuclear power generation has been the cornerstone of economic growth due to low generation costs in Korea, but the disposal of radioactive waste continues to be controversial. Looking back on the controversy at the time of the establishment of low-level radioactive waste disposal facilities, it is expected that the establishment of high-level radioactive waste disposal facilities will lead to enormous social conflicts, urgently seeking social consensus. In this study, we examined the process of establishing the policy and public debate on the installation of Cigeo, a high-level radioactive waste disposal facility in France. In addition, through SNA (semantic network analysis), we identified several key agenda items which had been presented during the installation process, including debate, business, waste, storage, public, question, danger, citizen, participation, and site. Based on the case of Cigeo, we suggested several policy implications that it is necessary to promote participation and discussion of various policy actors and to consider intergenerational equity as well as preemptive legal action.

    Analyzing A Model of “Safety-Promoting School” in Japan

    JaMee KIM | LEE, WON GYU | Kim,Kyung-hwoi | 2019, 15(8) | pp.29~41 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to conduct an in-depth analysis of the policies related to the development and promotion of school safety in Japan and their current status in order to find implications for South Korea. We analyzed the changes in Japan’s education policies concerning school safety, focusing on the operation of “Safety-Promoting School”. School safety education in Japan started as disaster prevention education, but became more powerful since the two recent earthquakes. The two characteristics of Japan’s school safety education are as follows. First, it emphasizes the contents about safety in all subjects in link with the national educational curriculum. Second, the 2nd plan of school safety promotion emphasizes a more professional approach through the system of school safety coordinators. Currently, South Korea has no disaster drills in the general curriculum and should reinforce school safety in their curriculum according to the regional and school characteristics, in conjunction with local communities and government offices.

    Is Cost of Safety Management Waste or Strategic Investment to Improve Organizational Performance?

    Jeong Mu Heon | Park, Sang-eon | 2019, 15(8) | pp.43~59 | number of Cited : 0
    The purpose of this research is to investigate differences in the organizational performance which is measured in terms of employees’ safety behavior and firm's average net profit. In addition, it examines the moderating role of safety management costs invested by the firms on the relationships between safety management style and organizational performance. The data were collected from 341 firms via the Occupational Safety and Health Company Survey (2015), the Electronic Disclosure System (DART) of the Financial Supervisory Service, and Small Business Status Information System (SMINFO). The results of the analysis indicated that both safety and financial performance were better when the firms take control of safety management than when safety is managed by a concurrently employed person or outsourcing. We also found that the costs of safety management played a buffering role on the negative effects of such indirect safety management on organization performance. Implications and future research directions were then discussed.

    A Study on the Effects of the Navy’s Collaborative Leadership on Organizational Effectiveness

    Seong Chan Park | Jae Bong Kim | 2019, 15(8) | pp.61~78 | number of Cited : 1
    The purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of collaborative leadership on organizational effectiveness (job satisfaction, organizational commitment) in naval organizations and to analyze empirically the factors affecting organizational effectiveness. The subordinate factors of collaborative leadership were identified as procedural cooperation, cognitive cooperation, and structural cooperation. The surveys were conducted among the naval officers in C City. As a result of the reliability analysis, validity analysis and stepwise multiple regression analysis of the data obtained through the questionnaire, it was confirmed that collaborative leadership had a positive effect on organizational effectiveness. This study suggests that the findings of this research should be reflected in further research and education on naval leadership. This study contributes to the literature by confirming not just a concept but also the components of the cooperative leadership and analyzing empirically the cooperative leadership suitable for naval applications in South Korea.

    Investigation System on Fire-related Crime - Problems and Solutions -

    Lee Kyu Ho | Park Jung Min | 2019, 15(8) | pp.79~95 | number of Cited : 1
    Considering difficulty in protecting the fire scene and a high possibility of destroying the evidence, fire-related crime requires timely and professional responses compared to general crime. In South Korea, the special police system for firefighting has been introduced for this reason, but there are many problems in legal, organizational, and technical aspects. This study examined fire-related crime cases in Korea and proposes the solutions. First, in the legal aspect, we proposed the amendment of the legislation and the change in the scope of work, including the revision of Article 196 of the Criminal Procedure Act, inspection of dangerous goods, and the revision of Police Officer's Job Execution Law. Second, in the organizational aspect, we proposed the coordination of investigative rights, the establishment of special departments and the municipal and provincial teams, the unification of organizational systems, and the collaborative investigation with prosecution and police. Finally, as for technical aspect, we proposed the securing of professional manpower and the expansion of professional equipment.

    An Analysis of Channel Landforming Characteristics at the Estuary of the Gagokcheon Due to Change in a Riverine Environment

    Jong Ho Choi | Jun Kye Won | 2019, 15(8) | pp.97~106 | number of Cited : 0
    The estuary of the Gagokcheon flowing into the East Sea is undergoing aggradation. Channel landforming is a process of sediment accretion, gradually establishing vegetation and eventually becoming land. This phenomenon will likely affect riverine ecosystems, interfering with the interaction between water bodies and putting the flood control function of a water channel at serious risk. Several years of intensive stream monitoring in an effort to establish strategies to counter this phenomenon revealed that channel landforming resulted from both natural factors and anthropogenic activities. However, it is difficult to identify its causes quantitatively by the existing onsite monitoring methods. To overcome this problem, this study aims to propose a channel landforming mitigation plan by analyzing the hydraulic characteristics of the Gagokcheon estuary using the 2D hydraulic analysis and sediment transport model, SRH-2D. The study results showed that the change in rainfall patterns has greater impact on aggradation than the artificial change to channel environment.

    Safety Assessment of Oil Immersed Transformer Applying Fault Tree Analysis and Functional Block Diagram

    Kim, Sang-cheol | 2019, 15(8) | pp.107~116 | number of Cited : 0
    This study performs safety assessment of oil immersed transformer through the FTA (free tree analysis) method. Top events are detected along with their risks for each safety device, which is classified into the components, using the reliability evaluation software where FTA is applicable. The safety device of oil immersed transformer may cause overheating and fire of insulating oil due to the thermal characteristics shown as electrical energy of coils 1 to 3. In addition, in case of the unusual operation of the coil, the temperature of insulating oil may rise along with an unusual sound, which may cause an explosion or blackout if overheated. Thus, the management of safety devices responsible for temperature and pressure of insulating oil is very important. This study designs a functional block diagram for the safety devices of six dial thermometers, oil level gauge, auto-resetting pressure, pressure gauge, B-H relay and pressure relief vent. An FT diagram was drawn and analyzed through a designed functional blockage diagram.
