Although the Serious Accidents Punishment Act was enforced on January 27, 2022, the subject and scope of application of the Act's obligation to secure safety and health has not been specified in industrial sites, causing confusion. Large companies and institutions with financial capacity are trying to respond to the responsibilities and roles of employers and chief executives through legal advice from law firms, but most industrial sites are not presented with clear standards for the scope of safety-related laws. Large companies and institutions have mostly established safety and health management systems for their obligations to secure safety and health, but relatively small companies and institutions need a lot of time to build their own systems and systematically implement safety and health management. In addition, as companies and institutions focus only on complying with safety and health laws, systematic management is rarely carried out, and by entrusting safety and health management to external safety and health agencies, it is overlooked in terms of securing safety and health. The purpose of the Act is to strengthen the obligation to secure safety and health to employers and chief executives to prevent industrial accidents by discovering harmful and risk factors existing in the workplace in advance. Therefore, in order to secure safety and health of companies and institutions, it is necessary to make more efforts to secure safety and health by the workplace itself rather than relying on external institutions.
