On May 30, Kim Young Kyun, Senior ESH Technician for Monsanto Korea and Japan, provided a safety training session to local elementary school students near the Jochiwon R&D Center. This school, located in a rural area, has only 67 students.
The program focused on safety in the children’s daily lives, both inside and outside of school. Some of the components of the program included:
- Vehicle safety that students should keep in mind on their way to school
- Why and how students should sit with good posture and the importance of stretching during and in between classes
- Field safety required during outside activities
- Fire safety while using electric devices in the kitchen
The safety training session was organized by Monsanto Korea to promote student awareness of safety in light of the recent sinking of the Sewol ferry that involved more than 300 Korean high school students.
