    The Seoul Metropolitan Government has designed so-called silent safety education book for non-Korean construction workers. Already in distribution, the picture book does not have any words written in it, preventing the language barrier from causing any accident. Seoul city said Thursday that the 88-paged pocket book is easy to carry around, and contains 73 guidelines ranging from proper use of equipment to civil safety measures, and can also be downloaded as a PDF file. Over 700 foreign laborers make up about 18 percent of those working at public construction sites managed by the city.
