A recent report from Bloomberg confirms that Foxconn is interested and seeking to hire new security and safety experts to help improve the working conditions in facilities that are responsible for supplying Apple products. Louis Woo, Foxconn’s retail division chairmen confirmed the job listings, which include a lifestyle manager - responsible for maintaining worker dorms and healthcare, a safety and security expert, as well as two fire chiefs.
According to Woo:
The lifestyle manager will be responsible for conditions at the company’s dormitories, canteens and health departments, according to the advertisement. The safety and security post requires a college degree in criminal investigation or legal- related disciplines, while the fire chiefs must have at least four years of related experience.
We’ll have to see if Apple and Foxconn are able to get their act together regarding these issues. It will just be a matter of time until the results for the audits are in, which will end up revealing the whether the companies were successful or not.
