Workers recount tragedy at China steel factory

I’ve commented more than once on China’s workplace safety record, especially in the steel and coal industries, because they relate most specifically to metal stamping.

In this accident, a crane failure occurred while the laddle was full of molten steel.

In an irony I’m sure no one appreciates, they were having a safety meeting in that meeting room.

Survivors of a horrific industrial accident in northeast China Thursday recounted the gruesome scene at their factory when 26 tonnes of molten steel poured into a meeting room, killing 32 workers.


The accident happened at Qinghe Special Steel Corp, a relatively modern facility in China’s former industrial heartland in Liaoning province.
