 Abstract
The paper suggests to measure the risk of pedestrians inside urban railway stations. The level of risk is calculated in manner of both an average risk and average weighted risk of 9 different facility inside urban railway stations. Based on these level of risk, top 10 stations are chosen out of all the stations operated by Seoul Metro and Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Cooperation (SMRT). In order to alleviate the level of risk, countermeasures for those risks are surveyed for 60 experts who are now involved in safety issues in those 2 railway operation companies. A countermeasure survey for the accidents is done into 2 ways. One is to lower the probability of making accidents and the other is to alleviate the consequence for accidents. The effectiveness of those alternatives is surveyed between 1 to 5 yardsticks and converted into one value for each alternative.
