Tell Apple to go further to protect worker health and safety

In response to consumer pressure, Apple announced it would ban the use of benzene and n-hexane at its final assembly facilities starting September 2014.

However, we need Apple to go further. A new report issued by China Labor Watch and Green America found significant chemical exposures and fire safety risks at a factory that makes components for iPhones and iPads. 

Even worse, this is a factory that was previously investigated, and Apple was informed of numerous violations. Those violations still persist and are joined by many other threats to worker health and safety.

Apple needs to make a commitment to all of the workers that produce its products to ensure they work in safe environments.

Join Green America in asking Apple to build on its first steps to protect workers and encourage the company to go further to ensure all workers who make its products are safe.
