Work safety problems found in site checks
Inspectors from the State Administration of Work Safety spotted 1,742 potential risks in various industries during a review of production safety last month.
Thirty-one teams carried out evaluations at 800 companies in 31 provinces and regions.
As a result, 26 enterprises were forced to cease production until adequate work safety facilities were installed, and five were ordered to close permanently.
The administration has urged all provincial-level governments to strengthen work safety to further prevent accidents.
