Another death at Hanjin Heavy’s Subic yard

A worker was killed at Hanjin Heavy’s Subic Bay yard in the Philippines on Wednesday when his head was accidentally crushed by a barrier.

The accident happened at dawn in the blasting section of one of the shipyard’s warehouses.

A lawyer for a local union claims that this is the 38th work-related death at the yard since it started operations eight years ago, leading for calls for the Korean company to build more significant medical facilities within the yard.
