Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficiency of safety awareness of VR experience programs for marine safety and the participants’ re-participating behavior. This would emphasize the need for maritime safety experience education, and contribute to preparing basic data for diversification of maritime safety VR contents. From June to August 2021, five of maritime safety experience facilities were visited to target users of VR programs. A total of 350 data were collected using the convenient sampling method, and 295 data were finally used for data analysis. As a result, VR experience for maritime safety had a positive effect on the participants' maritime safety awareness and re-participation behavior. This study could be meaningful in terms of highlighting the need to develop safety programs, and to expand education in South Korea, where three sides are the sea. In addition, this study emphasized the necessity of producing and operating various contents and programs based on VR.
