Abstract

This report presents Korea’s experience and knowledge on the establishment and implementation of occupational safety and health (OSH) laws and regulations, as well as industrial accident prevention activities. Many injuries and illnesses occurred at work in the process of the country’s rapid economic development, and therefore, efforts have been made at the national level to prevent these accidents. The purpose of the research is to help developing countries in establishing national policies and system on OSH and enhancing their level of safety and health techniques, in order to assist them to effectively prevent industrial accidents during the course of economic development. Also, this report is centered on activities carried out by KOSHA to prevent injuries and illnesses at industrial sites.
Korea’s high-speed economic growth continued until the 1980s and the incidence of large scale industrial accidents and occupational diseases increased sharply due to larger machineries used in industrial sites, rapidly changing industrial landscape, and the increasing scale of construction works.
