Objectives: There is always the possibility of accidents at gas work site. Therefore, we studied mobile app design for safety of gas workers. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this paper, we used literature investigation and analysis, expert interview, social indirect data collection. 1. Analyze the characteristics of gas field operations, workers, work site and extract need analysis of them 2. Investigate working process and incidents that can take place at the field operations 3. List the assumptions to design the mobile App. 4. Survey on preferred images in relation to gas work 5. Finalize the App. design. Findings: These are the demands for mobile App. 1. A clear arrangement of contents, 2. A design with high readability, 3. A design with low death, 4. A securing of user’s accessibility, 5. An effective information transmission plan in the work section where it is impossible to operate the mobile device, 6. An activation of alarm function at the section of high working error, 7. A fast two-way transmission and receipt of safety inspection matter needed at work, 8. A selection of images and contents that can guide the situation to the worker in case of accident, 9. An alarm function for the degree of danger in an area of worker’s location. Based on these, a basic design of safety application for gas related work has been proposed, that can secure the user accessibility. And we design the new display what is focused on icons of high readability in order to move the main system to the mobile screen. Improvements/Applications: 1. Sections where frequent operational errors occur must be identified. 2. It is necessary to explore various interactive devices that can sync with the mobile App.
