Explosion at GM auto parts factory in Kunshan

On August 1, a devastating explosion occurred at an auto parts factory in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province.
According to the most recent Chinese reports, the explosion and ensuing fire has already taken the lives of 68 workers and injured another 187.

Initial investigations suggest that the explosion was triggered when dense dust in the production facility was ignited. Safety measures like ventilation systems should have prevented such accumulation of dust particles. This tragedy is a result of lax safety standards in the workplace, writes China Labor Watch.

This plant, Taiwanese-invested Kunshan Metal Products Co., Ltd, is a designated supplier auto parts for General Motors.
