SEOUL -- To protect foreign employees from fire accidents, South Korea's HD Hyundai Heavy Industries has created fire emergency leaflets in 16 languages including English, Chinese, Russian, Mongolian, and Nepali. The leaflets will be distributed to some 3,500 foreign workers including members of the conglomerate's in-house partner groups.

HD Hyundai Heavy said on December 28 that the company worked with a fire station in the southeastern industrial city of Ulsan to produce leaflets. The safety guidelines were designed to inform how to use a fire extinguisher and hydrant, automatic external defibrillator (AED), and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). It also contains information about earthquake evacuation tips and emergency contact information. A total of 4,300 leaflets were produced.

Meanwhile, the shipbuilder completed the basic design of South Korea's 6,500-ton Aegis destroyer. Through the Korea Destroyer Next Generation (KDDX) project, the company aims to create a battleship with cruise missiles, advanced sensors, a missile defense system, and stealth characteristics, all built with pure domestic technologies. Six KDDX destroyers will be built by 2030. They will use a new system that improves stealth capabilities, along with multifunction radars to detect missiles, aircraft, and the surface of the sea at the same time.
