ABSTRACT

Preventing chemical accidents by safe handling and management of hazardous materials is important because the accidents could have fatal impact on the human and the environment. Safety education for hazardous substance handlers, managers and supervisors has been legally supported in South Korea as part of the personnel management for effective prevention and response to accidents. However, the absence of standard guidelines and detailed contents raises the need for a standardized education system. In this study, based on the contents for each type of safety training for hazardous chemicals as specified in the Chemical Substance Control Act, we analyzed the current status of safety education on hazardous chemicals in South Korea and similar educational programs in other countries to derive the implications. The standard educational guidelines were developed based on the analysis of duty and roles, required competencies, and necessary skills for each educational target. A standardization plan was also proposed to establish a system and prepare standards for safety education on hazardous substances, including contents development and curriculum design integrated with required technologies.
