Nearly 9,000 People Die in Work Safety Incidents This Year, Ministry Says
A total of 8,870 people died in safety-related incidents at work across China in the first half of 2022, some due to illegal construction and mining activities, according to the Ministry of Emergency Management.
The alarming death toll underscores the country’s ongoing struggle to eliminate safety risks in these sectors. An ongoing rise in the rate of incidents in coal mines and on building sites has prompted authorities to ramp up safety checks and intensify crackdowns on unsafe practices and corruption as a whole.
