[Ferro-Alloys.com] The Work Safety Committee of the State Council, the country's Cabinet, has launched a campaign to "remove safety hazards at the root" and effectively curb major accidents in workplaces across the country in about three years.
The campaign, which will run through the end of 2022, will cover nine major sectors, including coal mines, hazardous chemicals, industrial parks and urban construction, according to a media release from the Ministry of Emergency Management, where the office of the committee is based.
Under such mechanisms, instead of being pushed by the authorities in "a passive manner", enterprises will ramp up safety management, risk control and hazards screening proactively, it stressed.
With technical innovation bolstered and construction of relevant infrastructures beefed up, the campaign is expected to help "modernize" the country's work safety governance system and safe production capability by the end of 2022.
By that time, major workplace accidents will have been effectively curbed following a continuous decline in accident count, it noted.
The release also pledges to strengthen financial support from governments of different levels to help foster a batch of companies specialized in providing technical services on work safety.
By grading companies by types, law enforcement will be carried out in various ways. In addition to surprise inspections, law enforcement officers will be dispatched outside the regions where they work, it said.
It also reiterated that those who perform poorly during the campaign will be sternly punished. (China Daily)
