Since the opening of Seoul Subway Line #1 in 1974, the number of passengers has been increasing. The possibility for passenger's accidents in railway stations has also increased. In order to decrease these kind of accidents, railway operation systems have been automated. Nevertheless, the possibility of a casualty accident in railway stations remains. This study analyzed the type of casualty accidents, casualty accidents by age, sex, pedestrian facility, and passenger type based on the internal data of Seoul Metro. The causes of casualty accidents are also found out. Finally, the establishment of railway safety education program and railway safety experience center are suggested in order to prevent the urban railway casualty accident in advance at railway stations.

도시철도는 1974년 1호선 개통이후 그 이용이 꾸준히 증가하는 추세이다. 이에 따라 도시철도 역사내에서 이용객의 안전사고의 위험이 높아졌다. 이러한 철도안전사상사고를 줄이기 위하여 철도운영시스템이 대부분 자동화되어 있다. 그럼에도 불구하고 여전히 철도안전사상사고의 사고의 가능성은 존재하고 있다. 본 논문에서는 서울메트로의 내부자료를 활용하여 철도안전사상사고의 유형, 연령별사고, 성별사고, 보행자 시설물별사고, 이용객별 사고, 그리고 철도안전사상사고의 사고원인을 분석하였다. 이를 기반으로 철도안전사상사고를 예방할 수 있는 대안으로서 철도안전교육프로그램 구축과 철도안전체험센터 구축방안을 제시하였다.
