Chemical plant blast kills 14 in China

Among other recent deadly industrial accidents, last week at least 34 miners were killed in a blast at coal mine in the province of Yunnan.



Beijing: Fourteen workers were killed and
five injured on Saturday in an explosion at a chemical plant in east
China, state media reported, citing local authorities.

A brief report said the blast occurred
in Shandong province but gave no other details.

China has a notoriously poor workplace safety record
blamed on widespread disregard for basic safety measures as
companies chase profits.

In September, three people were killed in an explosion at
a privately-owned chemical plant in east China`s Jiangxi
province.

Among other recent deadly industrial accidents, last week
at least 34 miners were killed in a blast at coal mine in the
southwestern province of Yunnan.

In October, 12 workers building an underground parking
lot in northeast China were killed when a concrete ceiling
collapsed on them. Days earlier another dozen workers died at
a steel plant in the eastern city of Nanjing when molten iron
spilled from a furnace.
