  • Purpose: This study was analyzed with a qualitative research method by applying a phenomenological method to examine the experiences and perceptions and attitudes about health care of workers participating in rehabilitation exercises after suffering an industrial accident while working in the K automobile manufacturing industry in Korea. Method: As for the selection of research participants, a total of 12 participants were selected as the final re-search participants, including 1 female and 11 male, who could provide a wealth of information on the subject of the study. For data collection and analysis, Colaizzi's six-step analysis method was used to identify the participants' experiences and cognitive changes who participated in the rehabilitation program. Also, the participants' facial expressions and actions were recorded so that they could be used as additional observational data and reflected in the results of further research. Results: As a result of the study, 5 categories, 13 topic collections, 32 topics, and 97 construct meanings were finally confirmed. Specifically, the importance of strengthening the intrinsic motivation of the participants was emphasized in order to continuously practice health promotion after an industrial accident in the automobile manufacturing industry. In addition, it appears that a method of self-awareness of the necessity of exercise, giving fun of the complex program, and preventing and managing it in daily life is needed. Conclusion: The contents derived from the results of this study represent the changing perception of workers toward continuous health promotion management and improvement after an industrial accident. Through the research results, it was an opportunity to confirm the changing perception of health care among workers, and it is expected to be actively used in the future by developing rehabilitation exercise programs at the workplace in the automobile industry.

  • Purpose: This study proposes the Korea Coast Guard trainee behavior principle based on the value of the Korea Coast Guard in response to the Pandemic era. Through the proposed principle of action, we will provide philosophical standards for value judgment to members of the organization in various dilemma situations that Korea Coast Guard will face in the future. Recently, as a large number of young employees in various fields have been recruited in the Korea Coast Guard organizations, controversy has arisen due to the difference between the existing policies and the expectations of the younger generation. This means that the organization should make more efforts to establish and share the priority of organizational value to its members. Method: The Korea Coast Guard organizations have unique cultural characteristics that have been formed with unique history. This characteristic of the members is to examine the result of the formation of philosophical value of the Korea Coast Guard organization, along with the value policy of the Korea Coast Guard focusing on the educational regulations applied to the current students by the Korea Coast Guard Education Academy. As a research method of this paper, I would like to examine the behavior style required by members according to the unique characteristics of the Korea Coast Guard organizations in phenomenological aspects. The media press re-leases were used to maintain objective grounds among various problems caused by the characteristics of the Korea Coast Guard, and the internal voice of the organization was referred to the internal bulletin board of the Korea Coast Guard Agency. Results: As a conclusion of this study, based on the review of the philosophy and educational goals of the Korea Coast Guard organization. The principle of action is proposed 'Five Promises of Korea Coast Guard Students'. The proposed principle of student behavior is organized so that it can be applied to actual education center life from the perspective of the student. The first regulation of the prize and penalty for the students can be seen as a behavior that is supported and trusted by the people through 'honorable life' that helps others. Second, it emphazes that marine police will move toward a steady learning and effort as a guardian of the sea, along with the educational goal of 'trying to become an expert in the sea every moment' and prioritizing the expertise and practical skills. Third, the Coast Guard respect the human rights of the people who always keep their promises and do not follow injustice. Fourth, considering the spirit of public service value for the nation and the people that the result suitable for the public interest is more precious, overcoming the individual desire and discerning what is more suitable for the public interest is the value to be cultivated as a public official who serves the people after-ward, and above all, it can be wary of the situation that falls into the individualistic tendency, forgetting that he is a 'serviceman of the people'. Fifth, the direction of the challenge spirit shown in the 'expert in the ocean' that 'I am willing to challenge and overcome for a better future' and the future-oriented image that pursues the world's best pursued by educational goals can be confirmed. Conclusion: As such, this research suggests that the fundamental cause for this dilemmatic situation is on the absence of the values based on the organizational philosophies, and it is necessary for the organization to set up the operational methods based on its philosophical values taking into account the principles of action which are appropriate to the task of KCG(Korea Coast Guard). Also, this research asserts that the operation based on philosophical grounds contributes to the sequential positivity such as ‘psychological stability of the members’ and ‘creating hard working environments’ this will also help its members’ learning process and enhance the organization in general. The competence of KCG is the tool that leads to the safety, cleanliness and full of hope for our ocean. KCG has to possess the attitude that is challenging, creative and open that should be built upon its philosophical grounds for the long-term development of the organization. The result will be the achievement of public goods in the ocean and the safety of citizens.

  • Purpose: This study aims to examine the development direction of fire extinguishing education based on NCS on the teaching method of fire extinguishing education in the Navy. Fire extinguishment education is composed of basic education from basic remuneration to advanced education. Especially, since the Navy is mainly formed inside the ship composed of sealed compartments, fire extinguishing education is very important because there are such phenomena as Flameover, Backdraft, Flashover, Rollover, etc. except for special cases. And also, this study is focused on the fire extinguishing education for NCS-based education on beginner courses in the navy. Method: As a research method, the contents is developed focusing on literature review. At the same time, I work as a petty officer for 16 years and also consider the part that I actually experience as a field expert in the navy. Especially, I would like to propose an NCS-based education method that is used in most of the society in order to introduce the current fire extinguishment department in education and training. Results: In conclusion, the lecture-oriented education is still the most frequently conducted in our military. However, in order to promote the participation of learners through systematic education and training system based on NCS and job-specific education, which can be one of the field and lecture halls, and to apply it to the elementary fire-extinguishing education in the military, it is necessary to develop the NCS-based learning module together with the teaching and learning design and the teaching and learning process plan. Conclusion: Finally, the NCS learning module is designed to cultivate the ability to solve the job in case of exhibition or emergency. Therefore, it is effective for the students to diagnose the learning by preparing the result table and self-assessment checklist after the training and to perform grouping and individual practice according to the practice guide after the teacher provides the explanation and demonstration of the practice guide at the introduction of the class. In order to utilize the learning module effectively, teachers should thoroughly analyze the NCS to understand the contents and level of job ability required in the field work, and to have practical skills and expertise that can be used for performance evaluation. Especially, the new instructors should thoroughly analyze the contents of NCS related to the practical curriculum and prepare for the following matters in designing the teaching and learning process. The following research is to compare the satisfaction of NCS subject and NCS subject.

  • Purpose: Railroads are public transportation used by a large number of unspecified passengers, and the vehicle itself is large and very fast, so there is a lower probability of general accidents than road traffic, but once it occurs, it leads to a major accident, causing great human and property damage. In particular, high-speed railways running at 300km/h are obliged to realize the value of absolute safety, but in 2021, the number of high-speed rail-way accidents increased from 1 to 4 compared to the previous year, causing the reliability of railways to drop sharply. In order to prevent high-speed railway accidents through this, two aspects, primary accident prevention and secondary accident minimization, should be considered at the same time. Method: The study applied Heinrich's Law(Heinrich's Law), the principle of industrial safety, called the law of 1:29:300, in which dozens of minor accidents and hundreds of signs must appear before a major accident. In particular, it analyzed cases of high-speed railway accidents, which are major accidents among domestic railway accidents, and large-scale derailment accidents by overseas high-speed railway operators. One major accident is caused by hundreds of signs and repetitive and unconscious behaviors that cause the accident. Preemptive preventive measures are needed to prevent further major accidents from occurring on high-speed railways. Results: The causes of derailment accidents among high-speed train accidents in Korea were railroad workers' insensitivity to railway safety, lack of business cooperation between workers in different occupations, and lack of KORAIL safety management system. Overseas high-speed train accidents were derailment accidents in Germany, China, and France, which were also caused by railroad workers' ignorance and lack of safety management systems. In order for railway safety to become an absolute value, the need for train wireless protection was emphasized not only to preemptively prevent primary accidents but also to minimize secondary accidents. Conclusion: In this paper, train wireless protection devices were considered to prevent secondary accidents among railway safety fields. The train wireless protection devices warns other train engineers nearby to take emergency measures within a 2-4km radius when the engineer of the train presses the switch of the train protection device in the event of an emergency such as an accident during train operation. Railway accidents must continue to innovate the safety system for interfaces between sub-systems, so if train wireless protection devices are technically upgraded and systematic response algorithms are developed and applied to railway sites, it will be possible to block the "1" major accidents referred to in Heinrich's Law. In the future, empirical research on the con-tents of the study more requires experimental application considering the railway operation organization and operating environment.
