New safety measures for pizza guysAn official system is finally set to ensure the safety of pizza deliverymen in the wake of a slew of delivery motorbike accidents.
The Ministry of Employment and Labor’s Seoul Metropolitan Employment Labor Office announced yesterday that it has signed an agreement with three major pizza chains in Korea, along with the Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency and the Korea Franchise Association, to foster safer pizza deliveries.
The three major pizza chains are Pizza Hut Korea, Domino’s Pizza Korea and Mr. Pizza. They will receive support from the ministry and the Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency to develop a prevention campaign, establish a safety and health management system and improve safety education for deliverymen.
Stickers reading “Safe drive: It’s a promise for customer satisfaction,” will be placed on helmets of deliverymen and flags will be attached to motorbikes.
“Through the signing of the agreement, I hope a safer delivery culture is adopted by pizza chains and in society in general,” said Lee Seong-gi, director of the employment labor office.
