The Ministry of Employment and Labor held the 'Construction Industry OSH Leaders Meeting attended by the CEOs of the country's top 50 construction companies at the newly built 120-story Lotte World Tower in Jamsil on the morning of April 21st (Thu.), and adopted the declaration of cooperation for the prevention of industrial accidents.


The meeting was held to come up with measures to reduce fatal accidents in the construction industry, which have increased in recent years, and to encourage safety activities among construction companies.


Employment and Labor Minister Lee Ki-kweon, together with construction company CEOs, moved to the 120th floor of the Lotte World Tower where they directly checked the state of installed safety facilities and looked around the work site.


The Minister said that since various potential hazards threatening safety lurk in construction sites, companies should pay more attention to, and expand investment in, accident prevention and build a win-win safety management system for both them and their partner companies.
