China has launched a nationwide inspection on workplace safety in an attempt to close loopholes and reduce accidents. Over the next four months, 31 inspection teams will travel the country, checking that government regulations aimed at workplace safety are being properly implemented.
The Work Safety Committee of the State Council said all regions, all industries, and all types of enterprises would be targeted in the widespread inspection.
While China’s safety record has improved in the first half of the year, approximately 19, 000 accidents have still occurred. The Work Safety Committee said a lack of safety awareness, poor regulation, and a failure to resolve safety hazards, are all contributors to the high number.
Any business deemed unsafe for work will be shut down, and any violators of safety laws will be held accountable by the committee.
