Taiwan Quick Take: CLA wants accidents cut


The Council of Labor Affairs (CLA) pledged yesterday to reduce the country's death and disability rates from occupational accidents by 30 percent in two years. CLA Chairman Lee Ying-yuan (李應元) said that although death and disability rates from occupational accidents have dropped 14 percent over the past four years, the ratios remain high compared with those of other developed countries. Lee said that the CLA would continue to cooperate with concerned authorities to prevent occupational accidents. Lee made the remarks while presiding over the opening of an exhibition on preventing occupational accidents held in Taichung City.
