Phuket – June 17, 2015 – JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa has launched the ‘100% Helmet Wearing’ campaign which, as the name suggests, aims to promote and encourage the wearing of protective helmets by motorcyclists.
The new campaign sees the luxury resort working with nearby Tha Chat Chai police station, and the two have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on their cooperation.
The ‘100% Helmet Wearing’ campaign stipulates that beginning June 1, 2015 all JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa associates must wear a helmet at all times when riding a motorcycle. If any associate is found not wearing a helmet, he or she will be fined appropriately under Thai law and be required to watch a one hour road safety video. The same applies for any motorcycle passenger.
In addition, JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa will receive a monthly report from the Tha Chat Chai police listing any associates who have been caught not wearing a helmet or who have violated the road safety law in any way. These associates will be subject to disciplinary action by the resort’s Human Resources Department.
The ‘100% Helmet Wearing’ campaign is in line with Marriott’s Spirit to Serve our Community initiative, in which the company seeks to give back to society and the communities in which its properties are located.
The 100% Wearing Helmet campaign is a key development in our ongoing commitment to improving road safety among not only our resort associates, but in the wider community as a whole”, said JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa’s General Manager Oriol Montal.
