This study introduces the current status of the design for safety(DfS) introduced as one of the owner - centered construction site safety management plan, and presents the problems and the improvement plan. The design for safety has been shifting from the construction management-oriented safety management to the owner-centered safety management system, The owner has to make the design considering the safety from the design stage centered on the owner. The owner has to review and approve the adequacy of the safety-conscious design and The risk factors that can not be eliminated during design are the system to prevent the disaster at the construction site by planning to eliminate the risk factor when writing the safety management plan that is made at the construction stage. The design for safety system implemented from May 2016 will be further developed to prevent the risk of safety accidents that may occur in construction sites, contributing greatly to the reduction of construction accident. In addition, it suggests ways to develop more efficient and convenient system through continuous hazard finding and system improvement.
