Workplace saftey

For the HR folks out there, or anyone with health and safety responsibilities this is something you don’t want! Moulten Molten steel kills 32 workers. (Updated spelling serves me right for posting quickly.)

In one of the worst accidents seen in China’s perilous steel industry, 32 workers were killed when molten metal poured into their meeting room.

A huge ladle sheered off a rail and spilled its 1,500 degree contents, engulfing the workers.

Although the cynical might say it is one way to shorten meetings 😉
If you are in the health and safety business you should be on the first plane to China.

Workplace accidents in China’s steel industry have increased by nearly 50 per cent in the last year, as the expanding metal sector struggles to meet the demands of a booming economy.
