A Death of a Young Worker in Apple’s Factory in China Was Not Due to Poor Working Environment

Apple Balla reports that Apple’s medical expert team, sent to find out the cause of death of a 15-year old factory worker in Pegatron, one Apple’s factories in China, discovered that the young worker died of pneumonia. His death was in no way caused by working conditions in Pegatron. The team also investigated the fact that an under-aged boy was hired in the first place, but found that he presented his older relative’s ID when applying for the job.

Apple stressed its commitment to ensuring healthy and safe conditions for all the workers in its supply chain. Apple’s medical team that visited Pegatron to investigate the death of young worker used the opportunity to ensure that the general working conditions in the Shangai factory are according to Apple’s standards. Pegatron is engaged in assembling Apple’s iPhone and iPad mini.

Pegatron officials also concluded that the worker’s death was not related to the working conditions in the factory before the Apple’s medical team came to investigate.
According to Charles Lin, Pegatron spokesman,  the worker was employed by Pegatron for a very short time and that his pneumonia could not have been caused by the environment in the factory. He also stressed that the young worker, although under-aged,  managed to gain employment in Pegatron by using his cousin’s ID.

New York’s rights organization China Labor Watch discovered that the late young worker passed a medical exam required by Pegatron for all new workers, and was in good health at the time.
