The purpose of this study is to prevent school safety accidents by conducting an analytic investigation on safety accidents that occur in elementary, middle and high school during 2010-2014 in Chung-Nam. We used the status of safety accidents in school based on the Chung-nam School Safety and Insurance Association database. Data was analyzed by descriptive Statistics. It was found that the incidence of safety accidents in school has increased, and in the case of elementary schools it was higher than in middle school or high school. Safety accidents occurred most during break time, and in schoolyard, and due to student's carelessness. Safety is one of the most basic human needs. To decrease the incidence of safety accidents, we need to set up with comprehensive safety system including human, physical and environmental factors. Based on the this study, it needs more wide study on various countermeasures and to determine effects.
