ABSTRACT
The article reports on a new scheme introduced by the Chinese government which requires Chinese factories producing dangerous chemicals to obtain licenses. The nationwide scheme is part of Beijing's efforts to reduce work-related deaths that were caused by a spate of plant explosions and toxic chemical spills. Factories have to submit detailed proposals to their respective local authorities to ensure that licenses are granted.
