China News Service, January 29. Li Wanchun, Chief Engineer of the Emergency Management Department and Director of the Investigation and Statistics Department, said on the 29th that the total number of accidents in production safety throughout the country has continued to decline year-on-year. Major accidents have increased year-on-year. At present, 43 major accidents have occurred and 157 people have died, an increase of 11 and 42 people year-on-year.
On the morning of the 29th, at a press conference held by the Information Office of the State Council, a reporter asked: The recent epidemic prevention and control, cold wave and low temperature weather, and returning home during the Spring Festival are intertwined with multiple factors. What is the national safety production situation?
Li Wanchun responded that at present, the prevention and control of epidemics, low temperature and cold waves, including on-site Chinese New Year, traditional Spring Festival and Spring Festival, and some companies have strong market demand and continuous production without stopping. These factors and changes have brought new risks to safe production. ,new challenge.
Judging from the recent accidents in various regions and industries, the safety production situation is not optimistic.
Li Wanchun said that since the beginning of this year, although the total number of accidents in production safety across the country has continued to decline year-on-year, the total number has declined year-on-year, but the major accidents have increased year-on-year. There are currently 43 major accidents and 157 deaths. There were 11 more cases and 42 people.
The month-on-month data is more convincing, with an increase of 5 and 8 people from the previous month. Compared with December, major accidents in key industries such as road transportation, water transportation, and coal chemical industry also increased year-on-year, especially in Shandong on January 10. A major non-coal mine accident occurred, causing heavy casualties.
To summarize and analyze, the national work safety situation this year is significantly different from previous years, because in previous years, the period of about one month before and after the Spring Festival was a period when there were few accidents and the total amount was very low.
However, from the current point of view, both the month-on-month and year-on-year trends have increased significantly. The safety production situation during the period before and after the Spring Festival is still severe and must not be relaxed.
Li Wanchun mentioned several safety reminders:
First, the string of safety must be tightened during transportation.
The Spring Festival Transport has begun. This year's Spring Festival Transport has reduced the pressure of passenger transportation due to the dual effects of reduced demand and increased capacity. However, the proportion of freight, high-speed rail, and civil aviation has increased, especially self-driving trips and short-distance trips.
Water transportation and travel safety in rural areas, especially in severe weather, require great attention.
Second, the energy, manufacturing, and construction industries are currently active in the market and demand rebounded. The vigorous production and operation of enterprises will also put great pressure on safe production.
Driven by the recovery of domestic demand and the increase of foreign demand, manufacturing production has maintained a strong momentum.
Some companies are rushing for orders to produce super-capacity and have a strong desire to expand production. Safety risks have further increased. The mining and supply of energy such as mines and oil and gas are still tight, and the pressure for safe production is also increasing.
As the Spring Festival approaches, it is common for various construction projects to rush to schedule and rush to schedule. In particular, the number of construction accidents in southern areas is increasing. Coupled with the recent low temperature and cold wave weather, the safety management of enterprises is very prone to accidents.
Third, the gathering of people and the accumulation of goods in key places will also bring some public safety risks.
On the one hand, the flow and storage of commodities and goods has increased, and urban gas consumption has increased, and the risk of fires has increased.
Especially for urban gas safety issues, attention should be paid to inspections, inspections and emergency duties. Once there is a situation, the emergency plan should be activated in time, and the more important thing is to pay attention to the use of safety publicity.
We particularly call on gas supply companies to increase their publicity efforts to promote user safety.
On the other hand, large-scale commercial complexes and entertainment venues in major cities will maintain a high passenger flow during this period, and attention should also be paid to the prevention of crowding, trampling and fires.
In short, we hope to appeal these situations through the media, attract attention from all quarters, and disseminate these safety reminders as soon as possible.
