This study aims to examine consumer product safety search levels, as well as their response to safety-oriented behavior change, in a bid to use the results in the diverse policy formulation of government and business, and as basic data for securing consumer safety. The findings of this study are outlined as follows. First, for consumer safety information search access and reliability, in the case of access, accessibility via TV and other press media was high, while accessibility via education (seminars, lectures, practice and campaigns) was low. Second, consumer safety-oriented behaviors were examined before and after purchasing products; there was a significant difference associated with monthly income prior to buying products. Third, in order to determine the influence of variables related to consumer safety-oriented behaviors, consumer safety-oriented behaviors as a dependent variable underwent regression analysis; information search access and reliability, and monthly income were found to significantly influence consumer behavior.
