“Riders are at the very heart of our business, and their safety and well-being is our ultimate priority,” a Deliveroo spokesperson said.
“We take every precaution to ensure their safety on the roads, and we have a dedicated Rider Engagement staff as well as a support phone line in place to assist our riders and ensure they feel supported at all times.”
“We were also the first delivery platform to provide free insurance to all riders to protect them in the event that something goes wrong on the road, and we are constantly introducing additional security measures like sick pay.”
