Taufek also said that the objective for this scheme is to provide food delivery riders with basic personal insurance policies that could help ease the burden should there be any accidents when they are on duty. Furthermore, it is also to create awareness to high risk workers to have an insurance policy to be used during times of emergency.

What do you guys think of this scheme by the Negeri Sembilan State Government? Should other State Governments or even the Federal Government emulate such initiative? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
