Samsung workers injured in another serious gas leak at chip plant

Korean agency Yonhap News is reporting that there’s been another major leak of hydrofluoric gas at Samsung’s main chip factory in the city of Hwaseong. This is the second hydrofluoric gas leak in the company’s history.

Three workers are said to have been injured, with no word yet on how badly. Only three months have passed since the last such accident at the plant, which proved to be fatal and which got Samsung a nominal $1,000 fine as well as a telling-off from police investigators — but which evidently didn’t lead to sufficient safety improvements.
