ABSTRACT

This study surveyed the safety awareness and behavior of the citizens of Busan to get basic data for the prevention of safety-accident, and a total of 17,088 households in Busan Metropolitan City were selected by systematic sampling as the subjects of the research. As the research methodology, questionnaires were prepared by direct visits to interview with the subjects and were collected. Based on the data with the reliability of the results of the survey having a 95% confidence level with ±3.0% error, the safety awareness and behavior were investigated. The result of the analysis showed that in the safety awareness of the elderly population, the elderly people were lower degree of perception and lower rate of practice than the other age group, revealing that the elderly people were vulnerable to safety-accident. Particularly, for the traffic safety, the education and promotion of safety regulations for elderly people in driving or walking can be said to be urgently needed. Accordingly, together with the development and dissemination of the programs such as participatory education for the entire Busan citizens on the promotion of safety awareness and the prevention of safety-accident, the enactment of the policies to prevent damages and to promote safety for the elderly population is needed.
