ABSTRACT

This research reviewed the problems of the national and regional safety management plan in Korea, along with the cases from foreign countries, in order to propose policy directions. We have learned as a result of this study that the Korea’s safety management plan had four major problems; limited measures to address new and composite disasters, excessive bureaucracy and formality, insufficient connectivity between national and regional plans, and insufficient consideration of regional characteristics. The most imminent factor to resolve the problems in disaster management system in Korea was found to determine the selection, analysis, evaluation and monitoring processes of developing the risk register in advance, which should be needed to establish the plans for safety management. In addition, re-evaluation and adjustment of appropriate time and enhancement of plan connectivity could function as a fundamental manual in case of disasters or safety accidents. We argue that the lessons from the foreign cases examined in this study should be applied and adjusted to the Korean context in order to establish more efficient disaster safety management plans and system in Korea.
