Chinese authorities on Wednesday reiterated efforts to improve workplace safety and prevent major accidents.

At a teleconference, the State Council warned of severe and complicated situation with regard to work safety, demanding local authorities to keep on high alert for safety hazards.

China will continue to carry out inspections over workplace safety, with targeted crackdowns on coal, dangerous chemicals, transport and construction industries, according to the meeting.

A stricter responsibility mechanism should be put in place and related law-making be accelerated, to enhance response capability.

Vice Premier Ma Kai attended the conference.

Despite regular calls for better safety, frequent tragedies still occur due to lack of safety awareness and lax implementation of safety measures.
