ShopeeFood riders now have access to formal education on road safety as well as first aid response and emergency practices through Rakan Penghantar, a pilot programme organised by ShopeeFood.

The main objective of the Rakan Penghantar CSR initiative is to encourage close cooperation between the relevant ministries and Government agencies as part of ongoing efforts by ShopeeFood to educate food delivery riders on being safe and obeying traffic regulations.

This additional training will empower food delivery riders not just with good safety habits but also with emergency skills to help reduce road incidents.

A total of 100 ShopeeFood riders in Selangor were the first food delivery riders in Malaysia to participate in the programme.

ShopeeFood Malaysia Head of Operations Kwa Yin Leng said that the education programme is specifically aimed at food delivery riders.

P-hailing riders have a tough job of driving hundreds of kilometres every day to ensure food is delivered to our customers. Protecting our ShopeeFood riders’ safety and well-being is our utmost priority. It helps to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to ensure their safety while at work.
