Korean activists score another OHS win

The occupational health and safety labour activists of SHARPS had another win in court recently when a judge upheld an earlier decision confirming that a Samsung Electronics worker’s disease was caused by her work. The case centred on Kim Mi-seon, a former worker who assembled LCDs and who developed Multiple Sclerosis from her time at Samsung. This is only one of many cases of disease that workers at Samsung Electronics have endured. In the meantime, the sit in front of Samsung offices has passed 660 days.
