ABSTRACT

This study investigates the effects on how the education of occupational safety and health education has influenced on industrial accidents. Using the 2009 Korean Occupational Safety and Health Survey data, we test the effectiveness of occupational safety and health education, classified by company size, workers’ characterisitcs, government policies related with occupational safety and health, and other individual-level variables such as an exposure time. Our empirical analysis indicates that the occupational safety and health education on the non white-color job-workers in service sectors has the positive effect on the number of industrial accident worker and also the education for working condition changes can reduce the number of industrial accidents in the manufacturing sectors. Nevertheless, most of occupational safety and health education in Korean cannot reduce the industial accidents dramatically, and thus institutional and operational improvement is required for Korean occupational safety and health education systems.
