ABSTRACT

Enhanced personal safety competency through safety education will improve the quality of life and be a cornerstone of a safe society. The study aims to assess the current status of safety education contents in Korea, identifying the gaps based on the Korean Age-specific Safety Education Map. The data were collected by using inclusion and exclusion criteria to select and extract 2,366 contents from 53 web sites. The themes of these contents concentrated on life safety, public health safety, and crime safety, while public infrastructure safety was rarely found in the contents. 55.4% of the contents were related to toddlers, children, and adolescents, whereas only 0.7% pertained to the elderly and 21.4% was not age specific. In terms of quality, audio-visual contents including videos and applications was less than 40%. It is recommended that safety education contents be developed to fill the gaps identified by this study, which should be followed by further studies ensuring that these contents undergo appropriate quality control.
