62 Chinese workers in the iPhone OEM are the most severely poisoned and can cause paralysis.
on May 10, Apple will launch IPH to develop one 4G around new energy vehicles. Apple fans around the world are eagerly looking forward to it, but behind the enthusiasm, some people say that the reason for this phenomenon is to pay a health price in many ways. In Jiangsu Province, China, at least 62 workers were poisoned and hospitalized for using the toxic chemical n-hexane to clean the screen when producing the touch screen of iPhone. Some of them will stay in hospital for more than months
a female worker who is still in hospital said that she worked in Wintek, a Taiwan funded factory. Her health suddenly deteriorated last spring, her hands became paralyzed, and she couldn't walk balanced. In the summer, she was sent to hospital for treatment. Other workers in the same room also had the same symptoms. After statistical estimation, they felt headache, dizziness, hand and foot pain, etc
damage to peripheral nerves can cause paralysis
until last August, the hospital confirmed that these workers were poisoned by direct use of n-hexane, and the factory stopped using n-hexane. Experts pointed out that long-term exposure to n-hexane will seriously damage the peripheral nervous system and extend to the spinal cord, leading to muscle atrophy and even paralysis
it is reported that the manager of the plant was greedy for n-hexane to dry faster and gave up alcohol, and asked employees to use n-hexane directly in places with insufficient ventilation. The factory has dismissed the manager and paid medical expenses to the workers. It is reported that 44 workers have entrusted lawyers to claim compensation from the factory
although apple is not responsible for the incident, some Hong Kong labor groups believe that Apple products are expensive, and the company should spend a little more money to ensure the safety of workers' working environment
