Korea Times reported that Hyundai Steel has tightened its safety measures to prevent the recurrence of fatal industrial accidents. This is reaction to recently introduced Serious Accidents Punishment Act, which attributes criminal liability to the head of a company if a fatal industrial accident occurs at a workplace run by that business. Hyundai Steel said “The emergency measures will be enforced in compliance with the Labor Standards Act, so we will pay our employees for their work on holidays. Repeated violation of safety measures can also be a reason for disciplinary action under law."The Hyundai Steel CEO is under investigation after a regular employee died at a steel mill in Dangjin in South Chungcheong Province on 2 March and an irregular worker died at a factory in Yesan in South Chungcheong Province on 5 March. The Ministry of Employment of Labor also raided six workplaces related to Hyundai Steel again, following its previous raid on four workplaces on 7 March 2022.
