On January 11th, the State Council held a national teleconference on workplace safety. Vice Mayor Chen Zhongchao was present at the Ningbo sub-venue. During the teleconference, it was required that all localities must fulfill their responsibilities and strengthen supervision. Inspections should also be carried out to ensure workplace safety during the Spring Festival.
Since November 2016, 4 rounds of inspections have been carried out in Ningbo. These inspections revealed that the overall picture is improving but there still exist some problems, which include weak enforcement, poor sense of workplace safety, low standard of hazard screening and weak governance. Besides, there are some ignored parts in a few key areas and some reported defects are not promptly remedied. In this regard, all localities should continue to carry out rigorous inspections and keep on high alert for safety hazards to improve workplace safety and prevent accidents.
