Posted on Mar 5 2013 - 12:40am by Editorial Staff

Samsung made an official move and has officially apologized on Sunday over a company pipeline which results in causing the hydrofluoric acid leakage at one of the company’s chip plant in late January, killing one worker and four injured on the spot.

Yonhap News is reporting that company’s Vice Chairman Kwon Oh-hyun apologize for the incident and shared his plans to revoke its application to have its Hwaseong plants certified as “green” operations for another five years.   “We plan to overhaul the system in a bid to better make environmentally-friendly workplaces.”

Samsung’s Hwaseong plant won the “green designation” back in late 1998, resulting in government to make regular check on the site. As of now, a total of seven people have been booked over the charges of negligence.
