A Thai factory worker died on Tuesday after a workplace incident, the Taichung Labor Affairs Bureau said yesterday, adding that the man’s employer would pay his family a sum equal to 45 months of his salary.
The man, whose name has not been released, was struck by a rotating shaft after he stuck his head inside a stirring furnace to investigate a noise.
He was pronounced dead upon arrival at Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital.
The owner of the cast iron factory would base the compensation on the man’s average salary over the past six months, Taichung Labor Inspection Office section head Yu Chih-jen (游志仁) said.
