ABSTRACT

The paper presented safety needs, safe environment and safety culture as factors that affect the safety behaviors of citizens and analyzed their behaviors in three areas such as traffic safety, life safety, and disaster- related safety. Results show that safety desires and culture have a statistically significant impact on safety behavior and age and gender are associated with safety behavior. This paper presented several implications based on the results of the empirical analysis. First, since citizens’ safety culture has more influence on safety behavior than safety needs, the government’s policy direction needs a strategic approach to develop safety culture on the premise of safety needs. Second, it confirmed that influencing factors have a discriminatory effect on the safety of citizens. Third, a theoretical refinement is required as a further study, especially in the measurement of the safety behavior.
