Eleven workers killed in another factory fire in China

On Wednesday a fire broke out in a small garment factory in Puning county in southern Guangdong. The factory was situated in a five storey building. The factory only had one exit, there were many hazardous materials stored inside the factory and there were no safety procedures in place. In addition to the deaths, 17 workers were injured. Unfortunately this latest accident underscores the terrible health and safety that many Chinese workers have to endure and that kills and injures thousands every year.
