For the past 22 years, the Korea Safety Award has been awarded to deserving businesses in Korea on an annual basis. This year's ceremony for the Korea Safety Awards took place in Jung-gu, Seoul, at the Ferrum Tower's Ferrum Hall.  

Selection Process 

After submitting their application, including crucial safety data, to the designated authority agency, OTK was selected as one of the first shortlisted candidates out of 200 companies that applied, showcasing the strength of their safety initiatives.

In the following months, a team of five experts from relevant authorities conducted a thorough on-site evaluation of their safety systems and firefighting facilities. This evaluation was pivotal in determining the award's recipient.

On September 22, OTK received official notification that OTK was declared the winner of the Korea Safety Award, an honor bestowed by the National Fire Agency Chief himself.
