ABOUT three to four accidents are reported weekly among p-hailing riders in the country due to fatigue and being made to adhere to delivery apps’ systems.
Persatuan Penghantar P-Hailing Malaysia (Penghantar) president Zulhelmi Mansor said apart from that, the lack of awareness on safety is also one of the main causes of accidents involving such riders.
“On average, they work more than four hours non-stop to chase trips and bookings until they get tired, (which can) eventually lead to accidents,” he told reporters after signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Penghantar and the Malaysian Society for Occupational Safety and Health (MSOSH) in Shah Alam today.
The MOU, signed by Zulhelmi on behalf of Penghantar while MSOSH was represented by its president Dr Shawaludin Husin, aims to raise awareness on safety and health among p-hailing riders.
“This cooperation is to support Penghantar’s safety and health policy towards creating a safe work culture among p-hailing riders and to prioritise occupational safety and health (OSH) based on the Occupational Safety and Health Act,” he said.
“It is also to create awareness and protection among p-hailing riders on OSH as well as to ensure that all riders wear personal protective equipment while working,” he said.
Meanwhile, Dr Shawaludin said MSOSH would recognise the OSH module developed by Penghantar, the Malaysian Road Safety Research Institute, Universiti Teknologi Mara, and the Social Security Organisation.
“It will be adapted as the p-hailing OSH guidelines, thus improving the social safety net of its employees,” he said. – Bernama, June 25, 2022.
