This study first focuses on the quantitative evaluation of current indirect regulation on industrial machines and devices in Korea. Statistical analysis of industrial accidents reveals the fact that more efforts must be directed towards securing the essential safety of industrial machines and devices at manufacturing stage hence guaranteeing the effectiveness of the regulation. In order for the regulation to be further effective balanced direct regulation on both manufacturers and users of industrial machines and devices needs to be implemented. An example of such transition is also shown.
