Really, one day and they are being investigated? I could see if it were weeks, or months. But 24 hours is a quick turn around as far as incidents like this having to travel through all the proper channels inside the company before being sent to the proper authorities.

I'm fairly sure you're required to report industrial accidents ASAP. If your organization cannot relay critical information to other departments/people quickly, then there's something wrong.

As a matter of standard procedures, hazardous materials incidents are to immediately be reported to proper authorities (police, fire, haz mat teams) to help contain the incident & safely evacuate people to a safe distance. Additionally, some "accidents" may even be intentional, criminal, or terrorist activity related. Reporting the incident after a full day is obviously negligent & could have made the situation worse had it gotten out of hand.

If this had been Apple many folks here would be upset by this negligence...nut since it's Samsung not so much. Interesting...Blood Silicon indeed. (Looks at my Note 2 with much affection).

So this is supposed to make APPLE look better?
Since when Tomshardware.com is into factory/manufacturing incidents?
I feel sorry for that girl and her family but there are people dying at work everywhere and everyday.

[citation][nom]neon neophyte[/nom]from what i read, it wasnt just some random employee that died but rather the guy who went in to fix it.[/citation]
Then either the repairman didn't know what he was dealing with or he was an idiot for not wearing proper gear.
