Chemical Plants in China Concentrate on Workplace Safety

Companies vow to improve current safety regulations

According to China Daily, the president of the Greater China branch of American company Dow Corning has said that the silicon manufacturing company will begin spending more time and money on addressing worker safety issues.

With the help of best practices and recommendations developed by the Association of International Chemical Manufacturers and the National Registration Center for Chemicals, the company hopes to improve upon its regulations and standards set in place.

According to another article from China Daily, though China has reduced its workplace safety in the last few years, it still has quite a bit of work to do. The country’s chemical safety falls below that of international standards. In addition to Dow Corning, other companies in China plan to improve their workplace health and safety issues as well.
