[Reporter Li Lianghui/Taipei Report] Is it really "not afraid of punishment"?

According to statistics from the Occupational Safety Administration of the Ministry of Labor, Qiyu Construction, a subsidiary of Xingfufa, has been suspended 56 times and fined nearly 14 million yuan in labor inspections in the past five years for problems that are immediately dangerous. However, major industrial accidents still occurred yesterday. In the accident, the Ministry of Labor imposed a total fine of 750,000 yuan today because the supervisor of the operation was not present to command and supervise and improperly manage the contract.

Today, a legislator questioned why Qi Yu Construction, which was involved in the disaster, had seven occupational accidents in the past five years. Why didn’t it conduct a comprehensive inspection beforehand? Labor inspections were carried out on the company's projects in the past five years, and 56 local shutdowns were found to be in danger of immediate danger, with a total fine of nearly 14 million yuan. The follow-up will continue to actively supervise and inspect the construction company.
